Youthful and fresh aromas of wild strawberries and bright red fruits evolves with subtle layers of spice and liquorice. At first dominated by plum and cherry, the textural palate develops spice and toasted wood tones. Svelte tannins and juicy acidity carrythis wine on to a gentle, peppery finish.

WINEMAKING


This wine was fermented in stainless steel open tops and then aged in large (7,500 l) French oak vats for 11 months. Ageing in large oak vats, instead of smaller barrels, gives the wine great balance with subtle oak which enriches structure while retaining aromatic intensity.

Ratings & Reviews



91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Light and fresh, featuring wild strawberry and raspberry flavors, accented by supple tannins. Details of forest floor, spice, clove and white pepper add intrigue and aromatics through the long finish, with gripping tannins. Drink now. 5,400 cases made, 370 cases imported." - MW (Sep 30, 2019)

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Perhaps the quietest expression to date of this wine, some swirling in glass brings forth delicate aromas like rose petals, strawberries, cherries, white spice, wild herbs and a warm earth character. The palate is elegant and textured, with tangy fruit and tannins that feel a little on the astringent side. As usual, the Petit Clos range of wines offers stellar value from a top biodynamic Marlborough producer." Christina Pickard (9/1/2019)

90 Points - James Suckling:
"This has a plush and plump feel with a bright core of poached cherries and wild raspberries and supple, ripe tannins that rise off the finish. Drink now. Screw cap." - (13 Aug, 2019 )
