Ageing Potential

The wines’ balanced acidity will allow ageing for a good few years.

In The Vineyard

Soil: Hutton & Oakleaf
Irrigation: Supplementary
Trellising: 7 wire extended movable Perold

About The Harvest

- A bumper crop this year did not detract from the excellent fruit we harvest from this specific vineyard site. We harvested at 2 different ripeness levels to cover the whole flavour spectrum.

In The Cellar

The wine was fermented for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks. It spent 3 months on the lees before filtration and bottling.
