It’s about 25% whole bunch (one in four barrels is the Dr Mayer 100% whole bunch wine), but that would go up to 50% if it was a hot year, which 2018 wasn’t. This is the ‘Close Planted’ designated wine, of the past.
In-your-face perfume of strawberry and raspberry, cherry jam, faint white pepper, almond nutty-savoury. Palate is very fine, ultra fresh, delicate yet bursts forth with all that red berry sweetness but that whips away quickly to almost elemental, pulverised gravel and granite mineral sorts of things. A wine to savour, it feels like quality and interest personified. It’s fantastic. - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front.
