Growing Conditions

2019 was cooler & later than recent vintages but with no extremes of heat. The red varieties enjoyed long hang time to achieve optimum ripeness, but rain in February/March required bunch dropping & selective harvesting. Yields were lower but quality was ensured


Five different clones of Tempranillo were hand-picked in two passes on 9th & 23rd March 2019 at 12.6° to 13.6° Bé from our Karridale property, which is sustainably farmed following organic principles


The wine was bottled on 20th October 2020


Once fermentation was underway, the fruit was hand-plunged in open fermenters. Maceration continued during the 10 to 14 days on skins. softening the tannins. MLF was carried out in barrel creating a smoother, rounder mouthfeel. Vegan friendly


15 months maturation followed in a mix of 300L hogsheads & 500L puncheons – no new oak was used.
