Viticulturist Notes
Fruit was harvested from 16 year old vines in exceptional vineyard sites from our GV vineyard. The vineyard is of sandy soils, with excellent draining providing ideal conditions for growing high quality fruit. Tonnages were kept low, (approximately 3 tonnes/acre) to allow for maximum quality and flavour. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and pumped over every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Once the ferment was dry, the resulting wine was pressed off the skins and allowed to settle prior to spontaneous secondary fermentation. Separate parcels of the wine spent between 6 and 12 months in French oak barriques, after which the final blending of select parcels took place. The resulting wine exhibits lovely red fruit characters, with hints of blackcurrant and chocolate. The palate has exceptional length of flavour with good tannins which will allow the wine to cellar for the next ten years.
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
Try this wine with a hearty barbequed steak, short ribs, or a mushroom pizza with spicy tomato sauce to heat things up a little!
