SKU: KOOMGTSHZ18
A single block of wine from an old vineyard in an ancient landscape. The wine showcases aromas of lavender, thyme, spring herbs, iodine and seaweed on the nose. The palate features a hurried burly tumble of tannins.

”The 3 iterations of the Koomilya Block are crafted pretty much the same way: picked circa 13.5%, wild fermented in open-top vessels and pressed off to 2nd- and 3rd-pass large French wood, although in this case 20% new. This, the only cuvée to be fully destemmed; 30yo material, grafted onto gewürztraminer. The tannins, expansive and suede of texture, without the firmer stitch of the DC, or the ferruginous mettle of the JC. Still, ample, impactful and dutifully burly. The aromas disparate across all 3. Here, dark grey silt stone delivers a bright, highly aromatic wine that sits definitely in the savoury, mid-weighted niche. Lilac, musk, grape spice and pulpy blueberry accents, mingle with a judicious reductive clench and a long finish of pastille, Worcestershire and iodine. Elegant and southern Rhône in sensibility.”
