Background

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 fruit was harvested at night when sugar and acid equilibrium was optimum. The grapes were whole berry pressed without crushing or destemming. The juice was racked from the grape solids on the bottom of the tank, and fermented at temperatures between 13-16°C in stainless steel, to encapsulate fruit freshness. Once fermented, the wine lees were regularly mixed into suspension for a four week period, with the aim of building complexity and texture into the wine. The wine was filtered and bottled early in its life to capture the freshness of the variety.
