Diane is a “UFO” according to Desplats. A wine that was made once and will never be made again. 2016 was a disastrous vintage for Patrick as he lost almost all his fruit to frost. He decided to harvest everything that survived and make one wine, which amounted to 700 litres total for the year. A rich and full wine due to some of the grapes being picked at over maturity. The nose is all caramelized fruits and candied citrus skin, while the palate has notes of marmalade, mandarin, smoke and tamarind. A wine capturing the complexities of life and nature in a bottle.

Every bottle comes with a small bag of chips
