Wine Description:  Youthful pale green colour, vibrant white currents and fresh lemon juice aromas. The palate is very refined, with great intensity and freshness, finishing with a flick of mineral texture. Released after 12 months of bottle maturation, this wine will mature for many years to come.


Winemaking: Hand harvested, the fruit was chilled to 6C and then 100% whole bunch pressed. Only the finest free run was taken, up to 450 litres / tonne. Naturally settled for several weeks with only the clearest juice selected for fermentation. Fermented at a cool temperature between 10-13C until completely sugar dry. Left for 3 months on yeast lees before being prepared for bottling.

Shallow, low fertility soils, together with challenging climatic conditions associated with the altitude contribute to low yields. The vineyard location and aspect maximise the morning sun and eliminate the harsh late afternoon heat, as well as protecting it from the prevailing and potentially damaging south westerly winds. This combination of unique site attributes consistently contributes to fine delicate flavours.

The harvest in Eden Valley is not just about the climate, it’s also about the colours, smells and sounds of Autumn which makes this time of year very special.

Wine Description

Deep crimson in colour the wine displays an attractive complex aroma of spice and white pepper, lavender fragrances and an infused blueberry liquorice lift. The palate is concentrated and complex in both flavour and intrigue, displaying layers of fruit and savoury spice, finishing with a chewy, textured tannin. With careful cellaring this wine will mature for many years to come.


Winemaking

Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed with 25% whole cluster inclusion, in a small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenter. The fruit was chilled for 6 days before being allowed to naturally warm up to start fermentation. Hand plunged daily and fermented at 24C ensured a slow gentle and controlled extraction. Post-pressing, the wine was transferred to a combination of new and seasoned French oak hogsheads. Matured for 24 months in oak without racking, the wine was then naturally clarified and bottled without filtration. The bottled wine was then further matured for 2-years before release.
