The grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards in the Darling region. The dry land, unirrigated vineyards grow on northern-facing slopes in deep rich soils and produced a yield of around 8tonnes per hectare.
ABOUT THE HARVEST
The grapes were harvested by hand at 24° Balling at the end of February.
IN THE CELLAR
The fruit received no skin contact in the cellar and was fermented in stainless steel tanks at 13° to 15°C. After fermentation, the wine was left on the fine lees for three months to enhance texture and flavor. This wine received no wood treatment.
