Winemaking Note

The grapes for this wine were picked from forty year old vines growing on the red basalt volcanic clay of our Timbervines Vineyard. With an average yield of only one tonne per acre the fruit for this wine was intensely concentrated in flavour. The drought vintage coupled with our use of 30% of the juice for our saignee has increased the concentration of this wine. The grapes were picked at full ripeness and were fermented under cool conditions using cultured aromatic yeast. After fermentation the wine was placed in older oak hogsheads for a period of eighteen months to allow it to soften and mature without gaining overt oak characters. The wine was bottled in January 2008.
