WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

2013 was a warm and dry season at High Eden with low to moderate yields across our mature Chardonnay blocks. The weathered 500 million year old micacceous meta-sandstone bedrock that forms the ridge of Mountadam was once an ancient shorelines and has produced quartz rich, acidic soils with little water holding capacity. Small and regular irrigation was critical through the ripening period of 2013 to maintain the vines in their best condition. Three of the four clonal components of this wine are from the oldest (38years) and highest elevated plantings of the estate at 550m. Only the 29 year old II0V1 component comes from a distinct quartz outcrop planted at 470m.

Winemaking

All parcels were hand harvested at their optimum flavour then hand graded before being gently crushed and fermented in separate batches, using our own selected cultured yeast. The juice was run off then recombined with the skins daily until fermentation was complete over two weeks. The skins were then allowed to sit undisturbed in contact with the young wine for up to 5 weeks. Following malolactic fermentation using our own selected cultured strain, the wines were aged in new French barriques for 2 years before bottling in November 2011
