2019 Shobbrook Wines Ottantotto



It has been a long time between Shobby's.
We've missed him. Notes from the man himself - The idea behind Ottantotto is to make the best wine I can from the tiny amount of fruit these old vine trees can give. In our first harvest of the 2019 Ottantotto we managed to find about 650 kilograms of fruit over the 2.2 hectares planted. With the tiny berries and loads of stalks this works out to be about 2hl or 200 liters / Ha. The vines are very low yielding, planted 88 years prior in the sands of Vine Vale. What results are some tiny berries on little stalks that give me some of the most beautiful fine tannins I have seen in fruit since returning from Italy.
