Cold fermented over 7-10 days with indigenous yeast (wild ferment), a portion had whole bunches of fruit, closely monitored to ensure the wine retains its natural fruit expression. Seasoned French oak was used for selected wine parcels for a period of 7 months. Each barrel is assessed and then blended to create a wine with lovely aromatics, depth of flavour, style and balance.
2021 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry days. Yields were generally low and this did result in some excellent parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the vibrancy and fruit derived characters that we strive for in our wines.
Small parcels of outstanding fruit were hand-selected from a premium cool-climate Adelaide Hills vineyard situated 425m above sea level. Individual parcels were whole bunch cold fermented with some use of wild yeasts and matured in French oak. Environmentally friendly viticulture, low yield and exceptional fruit is an excellent combination for our winemaking.
