High Sands is our Holy Grail. It captures the essence of our prized old vines.
The wine was kept on lees in 100% older French oak for 11 months. Each barrel was carefully selected to ensure it showcases the pedigree of the deep sand, with lifted fragrance, intense fruit expression and fine, gritty long tannin structure. Not fined.
“Intense ruby colour, bright and clear throughout the glass. Wine gums, dry earth and wakame on the nose. The palate is medium in weight but full in power. Fruit sits with depth, but the tannin profile is something special in its intensity and grip. Great length, it lingers very long. Time in the cellar is highly recommended as this will age very well. If you’re a classical Châteauneuf-du-Pape fan, then this is a wine to note.” – Stuart Knox, The Real Review
