Viticulturist Notes

Fruit for the McPherson Moscato was harvested from a select vineyard within the Swan Hill region of Victoria during late February 2015.  The fruit was crushed, pressed and cold settled before being inoculated.  The juice was also fined prior to inoculation to ensure that the final wine is smooth and easy to drink.  The fermentation was conducted at very cool temperatures ranging between 8-10C, with the fermentation period taking 10 days.  To make certain sugar / alcohol balance was perfect, the ferment was measured daily for sugar and alcohol levels.

Wine Harvest Notes

Just when you think you have an understanding of what's going on, another season hits bringing with it yet another challenge and a completely new scenario.  In 2015 we had little rain and warm tempratures, leading to fast ripening, early in the season.  Once temperatures cooled, things slowed down and we saw an increase in flavours and quality.
