Winemaking Notes

These grapes were selectively harvested from our Estate vineyards in Mount Benson from mid to late March. The grapes were picked, immediately de-stemmed and crushed. Fermentation occurred in a combination of small stainless steel static fermenters and Ganimede fermenters following a brief cold

soak. The wine was matured in a selection of one, two and three year old French oak barriques for 18 months prior to bottling. One parcel was kept in stainless steel to retain fresh, primary fruit characters to add in to the fi nal blend. The wine underwent light fi ltration prior to bottling.
