Mid crimson in colour. Smell of dirty socks and hints of pepper - ultra savoury. Evidence of Brett and one of the downsides of not using sulphur in natural wines. This has not gone to the stage of tipping down the sink but after another year one would have to do that. Brett never goes away and only gets worse.

Yup, got some barnyard action, but it’s still very good. Barnyardy funk nudges out sappy red berry fruit on the nose. The palate is crisp and intense, with way less funk than the nose. Electric cherry fruit, crushed high-toned rock, and an intense savory component. Long, mouthwatering finish.
