Background

A partnership with Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Lower Murray wine growers, Burns and Fuller is a range of contemporary and fruit driven varietal wines made by Jim Zerella. Each wine is fruit driven and balanced with a core of fruit given complexity by a barrel aged component. Sourced from a combination of established, dry-grown vineyards in central South Australia and low-yielding McLaren Vale vineyards. Wines are made and matured by Jim Zerella in McLaren. The fruit is hand-harvested and vineyards sorted before de-stemming and cool fermentation in small two tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging. Matured in seasoned French and American Oak (30% new French) for nine months before bottling with minimal filtration and sulphur addition. 2014 can be characterised by tiny yields, unsettled weather and very good wine. A cold start to Spring disrupted flowering and significantly reduced yields. As is often the case, the weather flipped with two heatwaves and then heavy rains- however the small berries and bunches handled the conditions. The result crop was for many the smallest on record but the fruit is outstanding- balanced and intensely flavoured.
