The grapes for this wine were sourced from Angove’s own Nanya vineyards and premium growers in the Riverland region. Soils are predominantly red sandy loam over limestone, on gently undulating east west ridges.
This product is a blend of vintages, combining youthful fresh characters from younger vintages with more complex toasty developed characters from older vintages. This vintage blending process provides a consistent quality product with an optimum ﬂ avour proﬁ le.
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern membrane tank presses. After cold settling the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. After some time maturing the base wines on yeast, the wine is blended, ﬁ ltered and bottled.
