A dry year meant the estates rocky, windswept vineyard, sitting atop an escarpment of shattered shale and limestone, provided wine of elegance with fine yet prominent tannins.
The 2020 vintage initially appears savoury before charming aromas of black cherries and caraway lure you in before roasted coffee beans and Liquorice Allsorts steal the show. This Tempranillo sits wide across the palate with vivid acidity balancing delicately on the soft, dark tar-like fennel characters and long white peppery finish.
Wondering what to serve with this delightful drop? Try Billy Dohnt’s own braised wild rabbit pithivier with butternut pumpkin, charred leek and grilled mushrooms. Magnifique!
