Mike Bennie

“Great. Wild yeast ferment, six hours skin contact, good times. Beautiful release.

Has fat and length but control. That softness, succulence, nice seasoning of oak, pretty in sweet spice and cashew nuttiness, green apple, light nectarine characters and a cute little twist of grapefruity acidity to finish. Very controlled, very complete, generousity with freshness on side. Elegance personified and beautiful ease to drinking. What charm!” – Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
