A 2,500 litre French oak barrel is called a Foudre…it looks like a piece of history or like it belongs in an art gallery! It captures beautifully the romance of wine and history…a little out of place in our slightly more mechanical cellar. The point of having one is the different way it makes wine taste and feel.
The usual oak characters still come through but in a more subtle and spicy way, with an interesting jacaranda blossom aromatic mingling among citrus and nougat. A riff on the usual, a little less ordinary, we love it.
