“From old estate vines yielding 1.5t/ha picked on a new moon day with a solar eclipse, wild-fermented in terracotta eggs, 86 days on skins, pressed to 4 French barrels (3 new), matured for 6 months. A totally harmonious medium to full-bodied cabernet, all the components precisely (naturally) calibrated; supple cassis, olive and bay leaf keep watch. 1080 bottles made.” – James Halliday
“Subtitled ‘Flower Day’ (though not labelled as such), but seeing as there’s only one Vanya from 2016, will keep the name as is. Of course there’s two Vanya releases from 2017, though will get to that later. Total of 1080 bottles produced from the old vine Cabernet, 86 days in amphorae before being basket pressed to French oak (75% of it new). Uplifting perfume, violet and tea, silky but firm drag of almost brick dust tannin, all red and black fruits, boysenberry in particular, biscuity and spicy oak is there but in background, acidity is scintillatingly pure, fresh and cool, and the finish is so long, with cranberry brightness, juicy berries, graphite tannin and other ‘minerally’ things. Sotto voce yet powerful and authoritative. Pure class. Next level. And so on.” – Gary Walsh, Wine Front
