Hiyu 2016 “Corvus"
Corvus is a one acre parcel in the “Field of the Stars” planted to Mencia, Cabernet Franc, Abouriou and Brancellao. It’s impenetrably dark, savage and the most mysterious of the red wines made from the property. The wine is extremely concentrated, but heaviness is not something that’s really possible from our Alpine site and the wine opens to reveal a soaring perfume and unexpected levity. It exists somewhere in between the perfumed wines of Ribeira Sacra or Saumur and the meaty depths of Cornas.
