Viticulturist Notes

This wine is sourced from grapes grown in our Goulburn Valley vineyards, based in the region of Central Victoria. The parcels of fruit were harvested separately over a three week period in March. Picking and crushing was during the cool of the night to maintain fruit freshness. Fermentation at cool temperatures for 14 days in stainless steel fermenters has helped enhance the pure, fresh clean flavours.

Wine Harvest Notes

Vintage 2017 is best described as a waiting game. The season was very long with fruit slow to ripen and although the urge just to pick it all was there, we had to bide our time until we had optimal flavours and ripeness. Once I made the decision to pick the grapes came in at an orderly pace, although increased yields due to the rain in spring made the juggling game in the winery even more challenging, with tank space at a premium. We made it through our marathon 2017 vintage and are thrilled with the exceptional quality including a number of really extraordinary parcels.

Food Recommendations:
