Description: Heaps Good Wine Company is short on words and it reflects their approach to winemaking, minimalist. "The right vines on the right sites with low yields. Sustainability. Respect for the land. Growing the best wines we can by understanding the differences in our sites. Minimal intervention. Let the vineyard speak. Blance. Purity. Restraint. Elegance." - Heaps Good Wine Co.
The color is light magenta all the way to the rim. Aromas of umami, sweaty leather and barnyard hay. The palate exhibits integrated dusty tannin, good acid/ alcohol balance and a layer of dried pomegranate and brambly cranberry. The terroir is upfront and present with musky earth and a touch of game. Really good light-bodied red that is perfect with a little chill during the spring/ summer months.
Food pairings: Mild soft cheese, roasted white meats, fish (salmon, tuna, swordfish), calf's liver, mushrooms, root vegetables, etc.
