Circle of Life Red is neither defined by grape varietals, nor indeed a specific block within the vineyard, but instead encapsulates the myriad soils, aspects, altitudes and grape varieties found on this windswept, biodynamic farm. The wine is left on skins for 30 days before going through malolactic fermentation in mainly old barrels, then ageing for 20 months in the same vessels. The components are then blended and the wine ages further in large wooden foudres.
A harmonious blend that combines the spiciness of Syrah, the fresh fruits of Petit Verdot and the juiciness from Cabernet Franc and Merlot. The beginning is fresh and fruity with good acidity, evolving into riper flavours with lightly herbaceous notes. Elegant tannins and fine, bright acidity on the finish.
