Wills Domain Cuvée d’ Élevage Matrix 2016
Blueberries, potpourri and summer berries dart across, introducing darker flavours of glazed plums and freshly ground coffee.
Red and blue fruits with hints of violets on the entry, with a dark coating tannin with flavours of wet slate and fine fruit structure to balance. Finish of yet more blue and black fruits.
Various parcels of fruit made up the 2016 Matrix were all picked, destemmed and lightly crushed separately and based on their own individual ripeness. Fermentation begins with rigorous pump-overs. The wine was then gently separated from the skin and transferred to French Oak barriques, to complete fermentation.
