The Dolcetto and Lagrein were picked simultaneously on the 23rd of February. This is over a week before our standard Dolcetto picking date and two and half weeks before we picked our remaining Lagrein. The two were then co-fermented for 24 hours before being taken off skins for a remarkable lightness of colour and tannin. No oak was used for this wine which was left in stainless steel for six months before cold stabilisation and bottling.
Foreign Correspondent is a hard-hitting exploration of fruit character. Red berries zip around the mouth. They are enhanced by a sprinkling of herbs and spices. This is an uncompromising, elegant and sophisticated way to enjoy a relaxing glass of red that pairs with everything from fine food to fine company. It is a serious red that doesn’t ask to be taken seriously. Try serving Foreign Correspondent slightly chilled, either by itself or accompanied by any dish you would normally reserve for whites and roses. The results should be informative.
