Vineyard Notes
Fruit came from blocks 18 and 22, both planted in 2016. Block 18 is on a schist base with some limestone, while Block 22 has bush vines planted on the contours. It’s very rocky (schist and quartzite) with limited topsoil. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic.

"Sourced from two section of the estate vineyard, each with varying ground and soil makeup, a key focus from the Alkina team in their recognition of tiny terroir mapping across their 43 hectares of vines. For the record, these are 2016 plantings, certified organic and biodynamic, one section is schist base with some limestone, the other schist and quartzite with limited topsoil supporting bush vines. All whole bunch fermented in three concrete tulips, one with extended skin maceration. The clever crafting of this wine results in a juicy style with a lot of extra, in-built interest, a note of flint which seems to be a vineyard trait here, the variety’s subtle blood lip character seasoning the cherry-ish fruit along with a liberal dash of peppery spice and lightly grainy tannins. Good friendly grenache pleasure with perks"
