An explosion of floral elements wafts from the glass, showcasing a potpourri of violets, white petunias, star anise, and clove. The palate is fresh and vibrant offering briny and black pepper notes along with root spices and crushed rocks. This finishes light on its feet with tannins that are reminiscent of fine leather. 14.0% ABV. Aged for 20 months in 500L bee’s wax lined terracotta amphora.
