Winemaking Notes: Fruit is harvested by hand from 45-year-old vines. A 15-day fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged in tank and is bottled unfiltered and unfined.

Tasting Notes: The Rackham's nose is super inviting, with notes of juicy strawberry and red berry desserts. On the palate, this drinkable red is light in tannins, with wonderful acidity and a long finish of fruit and spice. Incredibly balanced, this would do well served slightly chilled.
