2022 Polygon No. 5

2022 Polygon No. 5

A deep and thoughtful wine that at the same time manages to be fresh and expressive. The nose is complex displaying red fruit, amaro hints and forest floor notes with decaying roses. The palate is awash with ripe cranberry and pomegranate and is chalky and energetic in its texture. A seamless wine with amazing ageing potential.

Vineyard Notes
Polygon 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. 1893kg of fruit was handpicked on the 15th of March from Polygon No. 5. 30% of the fruit was destemmed and the remaining 70% whole bunches were hand bucketed into a concrete tulip. With a cool ferment and gentle extraction, it was pressed after nearly a month on skins before malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in concrete egg for 12 months and bottled in August 2023.

Medium-deep red-purple colour; fresh and bright also on the nose, with cherries and a note of bubblegum, a faint reductive overtone that is barely perceptible; the palate has very good intensity and abundant powdery tannins, the finish long and drying. Density, concentration and power aplenty. This would richly reward more time in the cellar. If drinking young, serve it with hearty protein.
