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: 20+ years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
Fermented over 12 days in 8 tonne potter fermenters and larger vinomatics with twice daily pump overs carried out in both circumstances. Temperatures were kept cool, between 20 and 24˚C to retain fruit vibrancy and ensure a soft tannin structure. The ferment was pressed off at approx. 1 Baume to finish in stainless steel tank before being transferred to seasoned 70% French and 30% American Hogs Head Barrels for 10 months. Malolactic fermentation was completed by indigenous strains following which the wine was racked, sulphured and returned to oak to complete its maturation. No finings and only light filtration were used prior to bottling. HARVEST DATE: 14th March 2019
