The Owl & The Dust Devil

Description

Violet aromatics of the Malbec compliment the darker notes and structural backbone of the Cabernet Sauvignon whilst the abundant Petit Verdot and Tannat in this wine provide considerable richness and tannins. The wine has been matured for 18 months in smaller French oak barrels prior to release.

Extra Notes

Throughout the growing season a mystical battle unfolds. ‘Remolinos’, or whirlwinds, arise, spiralling into dust devils, which mischievously weave their way through the vineyard. Catching sight of the swirling dust, the owls take flight in chase, until the dust devils disappear into thin air. The owls then return to their watching posts, satisfied that their precious vines are safe once again.

Little do the owls realize that the dust devils play an equally important role in protecting our vineyard. Their airflow defends our vines from spring frosts and keeps our grapes dry and cool during the summer.

This intricately woven scene between two natural wonders, the winged predator and the wind, helps make our Remolinos Vineyard so distinctive and ‘The Owl & The Dust Devil’ wine so exceptional.

*** This wine comes with a fantastic augmented reality label on the back, that cleverly tells the above story. A nice touch!
