VINIFICATION

The grapes for this wine were hand picked from a combination of vineyards. They were all kept separate during their fermentation and maturation lives. The fruit was crushed and destemmed into two tonne open fermenters and hand plunged three times a day. After approximately ten days of fermentation, during which time the temperature and acid levels were monitored, they were individually pressed to tank using an air bag press. Finally the wine was racked off gross lees and put into barrel to finish malolacticfermentation and mature in a combination of new French and older barriques.

WINEMAKER’S COMMENTS

Grapes come from a selection of vineyards in Heathcote. Two are off the deep red Cambrian soil and the third comes from tougher more gravelly ground. The Cambrian delivers intense wines with chocolate and earth while the other terroir is more highly fragrant with good acid and sweet fruit.
