2017 was a fantastic year for winemaking in McLaren Vale. We had an extremely wet winter and our vineyards reached full saturation point. Spring brought very consistent fruit set and flowering. The rain continued throughout summer and mild days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening season. These conditions resulted in fragrant whites with lower acidity, and elegant reds with very attractive primary fruit flavours and lower alcohols. The grapes were hand picked and selector harvested at optimum flavour and sugar equilibrium. 40% of the harvest was used as whole bunches while the remainder was delicately destemmed and fermented using 100% indigenous (wild) yeast . The small batch ferments were carefully plunged and pumped over for 14 days to extract colour, flavour and tannin structure. The ferments were pressed to new and mature French oak barriques, where they were nurtured for 12 months prior to blending and bottling.
