WINEMAKING NOTES: Fruit for this wine was sourced from our McLaren Vale vineyards planted 26-38 years ago. After harvesting at night, the grapes were pressed gently without crushing and the juice was allowed to clarify naturally and slowly. Following racking, the juice was cold fermented using yeast strain renown for enhancing the aromatics of the wine. The components were then blended together and received a light fining during stabilising.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION:This wine has an excellent heritage of vines planted in 1972 and 1985. Each year these vineyards produce fruit of excellent flavour and depth with both varieties contributing citrus characters with an extra dimension of limes, snow peas and gooseberries.
