VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING

Selected parcels of fruit from the Great Southern which delivered excellent growing conditions in 2017, with winter and spring being reasonably dry but with well-timed rainfall in January delivers the moisture needed for further vine growth. The parcels of free run juice underwent a long and slow cold fermentation in a stainless steel tank immediately after pressing to preserve the fruit character. Gentle lees stirring was carried out to add subtle texture. The wine was bottled in July 2017.

THE WINE

The colour is light with a green tinge, the aromatics display apple blossom and citrus tones. The palate shows a softly textured, crisp style with subtle mineral undertones and a tight acidic finish. It is anticipated in time this wine will develop a stone-line minerality and poached citrus richness whilst retaining its linear acidity.
