X - 003

StoryX. The undefined variable in an equation. Every vintage, there’s a number of parcels and batches that are distinct and striking, and it would be criminal to let them fade away unnoticed, so we dedicated a letter to document our experiences, explorations and experiments. They are the smallest of small batches, so snap it up quick and see what excites us.
I've always had a secret love affair with Malbec (or 'Cot' as it's known in southern France) and so to have the opportunity to make it arose I leapt at it. The aim was to steer away from classic, bold and tannic styles that don't do it justice and instead celebrate it's youthful exuberance above all else, focusing on bright fruits balanced by earthier elements rolled into a gorgeous little package. The result was a wine that forced us to go "Yeah. Wow. That's something right there." and so the X label was born. My recommendation is to serve it slightly chilled and let it wash over your palate and fill it with the gorgeous ecstacy and concentrated goodness.
