VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
Located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga, the soil here is heavy grey loam mixed with black Biscay clay and sits above ancient Gnaltinga formation bedrock. Strong vine growth in spring is tempered by summers dry winds, developing pure, bright and savoury fruit flavours that are tempered by cooling afternoon sea breezes. VINE AGE: 10 years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
We carefully harvest the Sangiovese grapes by hand during the day then leave them to cool naturally as the temperature drops overnight at our winery. The following day the grapes are destemmed, crushed and pressed immediately off skins, to keep the colour to a minimum. The juice is then fermented at very low temperatures for two to three weeks until it is completely dry. The wine is cold stabilised and filtered before bottling where it waits to be enjoyed. HARVEST DATE: March 2016 MATURATION: 100% stainless steel ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 13.5% RS: 1.1G/L pH: 3.25 TA: 5.9 g/L
