The 2017 vintage turned out to be a beautiful vintage and will most be remembered as one of the great years in winemaking.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from our premium vineyards within the Barossa Valley. This region has a warm growing season with cool nights and minimal rain. These conditions allow the fruit to obtain optimal ripeness and flavour development.
The fruit for this wine was picked in the cool of the night where it was transferred to the winery and underwent fermentation in 8 tonne open fermenters at cooler temperatures for around 10 days.
This wine is put through malo-lactic fermentation and then transfered to old and new French and American Hogshead barrels to mature for 16 months prior to bottling.
