Overview

This wine was sourced from a single vineyard in Langhorne Creek, South Australia. This region produces warm days similar to Barossa or McLaren Vale but cools down earlier in the day due to the breeze influences from Lake Alexandrina. This combination of warm days and cool afternoons and nights allows the fruit to achieve optimal ripeness whilst preserving the attractive cool climate characters.

The fruit for this wine was picked at optimal ripeness in the cool of the night. Fermentation occurred in 8 tonne concrete open vats with a heading down the cool system. The wine was pressed off and transferred to separate French and American hogshead barrels to age. Following 18 months of maturation, parcels are then carefully blended before being bottled on-site to preserve that distinctive silky, savoury style that Hand Made is famous for. The wine is then cellared for a further 12 months prior to its release.
