Vineyard Notes
Polygon No. 3 is just 0.274 hectares in size and contains approximately 200 vines. Working with terroir specialist, Pedro Parra, we identified this polygon to be unique in its limestone content. There is shallow red brown earth over deep chalky sedimentary limestone which contains fractured schist and the limited presence of iron. NASAA certified organic and biodynamic. 1471kg of Polygon 3 fruit was handpicked and delivered to the winery on the 15th of March. 70% of the fruit remained as whole bunches and was hand bucketed into concrete tulip, with the remainder destemmed. P3 spent a total of 27 days on skins before basket pressing and maturation in concrete egg until bottling in August 2023.

Deep-ish red-purple colour; fresh bright dark-cherry aroma, hints of balsamic herbs and a whiff of Campari, Medium-full body and has a good sheen of fine sandy tannins providing structure. Deep and serious in intent, but not a big wine, just focused intensity and fine balance. Finishes with a long carry and great elegance.
