Vibrant, textural, savoury, clean, refreshing finish
A cool start delayed flowering and slowed early vine growth, but by
late December our organic farming practices had the vineyard well placed for another stellar vintage. Healthy canopies kept the grapes cool through summer and preserved the freshness beautifully.
Harvest finished up in early April, with the wines showing
purity of fruit and incredible vitality.
Produced primarily from a combination of Tempranillo for raspberry & spice notes, Merlot for strawberry freshness and Shiraz for floral aromatics & summer berries. Fruit was gently pressed to extract a free run component with minimal colour then fermented cool to help maintain aromatics. Some Viognier & Sauvignon Gris was co-fermented for textural complexity and lifted aromatics.
