Overview

Planted within our Lochar stony gravels on the top terrace above the winery and our very shallow sandy loam soils of block 7, 4 and 3.

The grapes were gently pressed and settled overnight before racking into a combination of fermentation vessels. Some parcels fermented in tank with selected yeasts and 26% fermented naturally in oak barrels

ranging from 2280L to 228L. The wine was aged on light fluffy lees for 5 months.
