2018 Polygon 5 Magnum

2018 Polygon 5 Magnum

A singular expression of Grenache from Polygon 5, a tiny patch of our old vineyard that we have studied extensively and picked and vinified separately. Wild in nature and darker in fruit complexion, this is a structured and intense wine with svelte, mouth-coating tannins.

Tasting Notes
Wild in nature and darker in fruit complexion, this is a structured and intense wine with great tension and svelte, mouth-coating tannins.
Vineyard Notes
No. 5 consists of two very similar nearby parcels making up 0.37 hectares in size. Working with terroir specialist, Pedro Parra, we identified this polygon to be uniquely significant because of its heavily fractured schist composition. There are deeper soils sitting above a thick band of micaceous schist that contains veins of iron-rich clay within the fractures. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic.
Ratings
Tony Love, winepilot.com - 95pts "After mapping and separating the Alkina vineyard in Greenock into tiny patches known as polygons, based on varying geologies, the winemaking team has made tiny amounts from the most distinctive of them in what they deem the results of intense research and extreme commitment. The prices of their Polygon wines reflect this and their rarity. Another all-grenache wine from a small schist and ironstone section, the wine is radically different to its Polygon No. 3 sibling. Here it reveals darker fruits with herbal wildness, some orange peel and flesh also in its initial aromatic greeting. Bigger, more generous in its layered fruit power, its tannin texture is still superfine with an earth and chalk dust feel. Again, a complete statement of grape and ground."
