Winemaker Notes: Intense, frozen raspberry, candied strawberry, herbal yet undeniably fruit centric, good weight and structure.

100% whole cluster to accentuate aromatics and concentrate the palate. The wine was fermented with 100% ambient yeast, and the only additive used was S02 (<40ppm). The wine was then aged for 10 months in neutral 500L puncheons with one racking before being bottled unfiltered.

Pair with Roasted chicken, pulled pork, red sauce based pasta dishes

The approach to Catch & Release is simple. Source the best fruit possible and let it do the heavy lifting. They do not course correct in the cellar so fruit quality is paramount.

The wines are delicate - Less extraction, gentle pressing and a general philosophy that less is more. It’s all in the details.
