The 2022 vintage was a challenging year, the summer proved once again to be hot and required the family to implement targeted drip irrigation with their recycled water system to ensure the grapes would reach their full potential. The changing climate and resulting heat remains the largest problem on the Medici estate, each year this challenges the metabolism of the grapevine. Fortunately the fall ushered in some cooler weather and rain which help the vines produce beautifully mature fruit. The quality of the grapes are high, with highly concentrated fruit notes.

What The Critics Say...

Wine Enthusiast 92 point score rating
This wild and funky wine is a joy. Aromas suggest watermelon juice, game and dried roses. The palate is similar to a sour beer but livelier, with tart wild berries and an earthy finish. 92 Points
