91 pts Tim Atkin MW 2021

Priced below the Camino Africana bottling but offering very good value for money, this has appealing struck match aromas, nuanced 10% oak, tangy acidity and pear and melon fruit. 2021-25

Winemaker Notes

The wine is made from 4 different vineyards.  As with previous vintages, the wine shows an elegant minerality with lime-citrus, sourdough and cinnamon flavours.  The tight minerality keeps a wonderful acid grip on the palate showing good aging potential.  A floral note of wild, white flowers such as frangipani and almond blossom is obvious on the front of the nose and follows through the palate. Likened by many to the flavours found in cooler Burgundian and Chablis sites, the focus here is to make elegant wines.

Barrel fermented with natural yeasts.  30% malolactic fermentation.

Ten months in French Oak; 10 % New French Oak – Nevers,  Allier;  Medium Toasted 45 % 2nd Fill French Oak – Medium Toasted 45 % 3rd Fill French Oak
