M+ Q Notes

There are three components to this wine; Pinot Gris (Bull Swamp), Pinot Gris (Millstream), Cabernet Franc (Bull Swamp) are all fermented separately then assembled in September. The Cabernet Franc is fermented using carbonic maceration and the Pinot Gris is fermented on skins in stainless steel for one month. All wines are then transferred to Puncheon to settle out and come together. This wine is far more.than previous examples. Pale crimson in colour, bright and punchy on the nose. The wine fills the palate with red fruit and spice then throws soft tannin akin to a great Barolo.
