Tasting Note
Vibrant and creamy the Three Card Monte has aromas of kaffir lime leaves, cut grass, minted pea and orange blossom. The palate is mouth filling and creamy from time in oak with vibrant citrus and herbal flavours dominating. Long lasting and moreish finish.

Winemaking
50% of the grapes were fermented on skins for three days with a cultured yeast and the other 50% fermented on skins for seven days with wild yeast. It was then racked to French oak, 20% new, for 11 months.

“This is made in a fume style with plenty of winemaking influence. It gets 7 days on skins and then is barrel fermented with wild yeasts in 20% new French oak, with 11 months of lees stirring adding further complexity. Yes, there is a lot of winemaking, yet it retains its lively fresh palate feel. Smokey, savoury aromas with a rich textured palate.”
