Terroir/Vinification

Harvest Machine at night


Vinification
The focus in producing this wine is to have vibrancy of fruit on the nose and palate with a tight structure and attractive mouth filling roundness. The fruit was all grown on our Estate between the McLaren Vale and Willunga townships. Following fermentation on skins, the components were pressed before dryness and allowed some oak fermentation. On the completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wine was ‘re-worked' and returned to oak for further maturation.

Aging  13 months maturation in predominantly French oak with some American Oak. 20% New French oak, 10% new American oak, balance 2-6 year old barrels.


Acidity 6.52
PH :3.62
Residual sugar 0.7
