Winery Tasting Notes

With minimal intervention, Colin and Ben make unique, elegant wines which are regarded as classics and unmistakably Barossan.

With quality fruit as the priority, a specific neutral strain of yeast is used for all ferments and is selected to help express the fruit’s natural flavours.

All pump-over regimes are dependent on the initial flavour of the fruit but generally they pump over twice daily and chill if required.

Ferments are taken off skins early as Colin and Ben favour softness and palate structure over excessive extracted characters.

The fermentation is then completed in either French or American oak, or a combination of both. The wine is racked and allowed to undergo natural malolactic fermentation.

It is racked once more and matured for a further 12 to 18 months, depending on the vintage.
