2019 Polygon 3
A singular expression of Grenache from Polygon 3, a tiny patch of our old vineyard that we have studied extensively and picked and vinified separately. An ethereal, lifted style with complex red fruit and spice overlaid on its mineral background and a great sense of energy on the palate.

“Delicate yet formidable, this wine’s dense, multiple layers of complex texture and flavour speak eloquently. There’s fresh raspberry and graphite, rhubarb and red earth, dark plum and ironstone, and a suggestion of sage and nutmeg among blackberry bite, caressed by fine tannins. Sourced from only 200 vines planted in the 1950s, this 0.27ha micro-terroir boasts red-brown earth over limestone with traces of iron, providing fruit of rare depth and concentration. More sensuous and ethereal that its raw-boned sibling Alkina Polygon 5, but their common characteristic is extraordinary length of the purest flavours.”
