This Kit & Kaboodle is 100% whole bunch fermentation, with all varieties hand picked and undergoing wild fermentation on skins until dry. The Grenache and Cab Sauv components were treated to a year in old oak before being combined with the tank-fermented Montepulciano. The brightness of the Montepulciano is levelled up with the Fuji apple sweetness of the whole bunch Grenache, while the Cabernet through its weight around to add savoury and herbaceous notes. The result is a real mixed bag – combining bright fruits and earthy tones.
Light-yet-heavy, earthy-yet clean, youthful-yet-old, rich-yet-soft. Dark fruits.
