Wills Domain Cuvee d’Elevage Matrix 2017
An intense wave of violets, cherry skin, blue berries and graphite breaks on a palate of power and pois.
Black fruits and undergrowth balance of crushed granite and plush acidity. A tensile core of ﬁne French oak and pure blue fruit textures drive the wine to a crescendo of cherry glaze and wet slate.
The parcels of fruit were all picked, destemmed and lightly crushed separately, based on their own individual ripeness. Fermentation begins with rigorous pump-overs three times a day. The wine was then gently separated from the skin and transferred to French Oak barriques, to complete fermentation.
