 2012 RunRig

The RunRig has often drawn comparison with the beautifully fragrant & tautly structured wines produced from the steep slopes of the Northern Rhône Valley’s Appellation of Côte Rôtie.

 

 

The Highland clans used a "RunRig" system to distribute land amongst their clansmen in a series of widely dispersed holdings.

The emphasis not on any one farm, but rather

the communal element of the whole.

Shiraz from old dry grown vineyards is blended with viognier, complementing the strengths and complexities of these individual parcels of fruit, whilst giving the resulting wine a further dimension.’

David Powell

Each of the eight parcels of fruit were gently de-stemmed into both wooden & concrete open top fermenters where they were carefully nurtured for 6-7 days on skins.
