2020 Jean Bouteille Pirate


No Added Preservatives


We always considered JB to be a bit of a pirate...
Notes from him; For the 2020 vintage we dropped the anchor in Cape Jaffa, Limestone coast, where we handpicked some Petit Verdot, Merlot and Semillon from their Biodynamic vineyard which is grown on sandy loamy top soil over soft limestone. The grapes were all whole bunch co-fermented in a stainless steel tank for one week of carbonic maceration with a bit of plunging to extract some colour. It was then pressed off into seasoned French barriques and rested for 8 months on full lees. Bottled without any additives or filtration. We recommend you pour the Pirate to your boat crew straight out of the fridge to keep their palates hydrated and ready to raid.
