Overview

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our vineyards within the Limestone Coast, South Australia. The 2019 growing season was both dry and warm. These conditions resulted in very ripe fruit, and wine with a great depth of floral fruit flavours and aromas.

The grapes were machine harvested from the Mundulla Vineyard near Bordertown and transported to our Hunter Valley winery where the fruit is chilled down to 8 degrees in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation was conducted at warmer temperatures and on completion of fermentation, the grapes were pressed via a large Bucher airbag press into another vessel where the fermenting juice was allowed to complete both primary and secondary fermentation. The wine was then transferred to older French barrels where it was matured for 15 months.
