Beautiful crimson hue. Mencia
Fresh, bright fruit, hints of white pepper, red cherries and red flowers. Carried on a medium-weighted frame which is taut, with lovely gravelly but gentle tannins.
CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT
Single vineyard release from Lenswood. Hand-picked, wild yeast, 8 days on skins, no new oak. It’s red-berried and tannic, herbal and earthen, though mostly it’s just itself. It’s lightish but nuanced. It needs food, arguably, especially given the assertiveness of its tannin, but it’s entirely successful and worth seeking out.
