THE BONSAI VINE 2016
These old, dry grown bush vines grow in shallow soils on hard rock, requiring hand pruning to keep producing berries in this harsh environment. The vines are very small for their age, their tiny shoots giving them a bonsai appearance.
This wine is showing the hallmarks of the warm, early 2016 vintage. It's full bodied and mouth-filling with luscious dark plum and mulberry flavours. The tannins are quite soft with spice and a little alcohol heat contributing to the finish. This is a drink now, fruit driven wine, well suited to food or without.
