Sourced from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked; Angus knows this vineyard almost as well as his own. Planted in 1969 over fine clay loam soil, the fruit was hand picked in early February. The juice was fermented on fine solids and extended lees contact was allowed before being bottled. The wine shows the character of the old gnarled vines; zesty, citrus fruit and refreshing acidity. Great early drinking, however patience will be rewarded with cellaring 10+ years.
