2018 La Violetta Nova Syrova
The wine has a number of different elements, with a lot of whole bunches involved.
Whole bunch Shiraz left on skins to start wild ferment, before draining off to finish in old oak; whole bunch carbonic Mataró and Grenache pressed off to old barriques; whole bunch Spätburgunder, a dash of Pinot Meunier. The wine is unfined. Kind of novello in style, with lots of red fruits, florals and herbals. It’s juicy but savoury, layered and sessionable. Put a chill on it in Summer.
