A warm and dry growing season ensured these low-yielding vines in South Australia's Langhorne Creek delivered a crop of highly concentrated fruit which was harvested in the cool of the night, fermented in open vats, and matured for 15-months in new French oak hogsheads.

Overview

A cool maritime climate. The cooling winds from the Antarctic and Southern Oceans blow across Lake Alexandria which helps to regulate the Summer heat and reduce the impact of winter frosts. Winter rains generally give the vine a good start and enough moisture to get them through the season.

The region has deep sandy loam soils allowing for good vine growth. 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 system. After fermentation, the wine was pressed off and transferred to French Oak Hogshead barrels for maturation prior to filtration and bottling.
