Viticulture

This Roussanne was carefully grown at our winery vineyard in Werribee. A mild spring set full crops. The summer was long a dry with no disease pressure. Grapes were hand harvested in the cool of the morning at optimum flavour ripeness.

Wine Making

The fruit was gently whole bunch pressed and left to settle over night prior to racking. The primary ferment was fermented at cooler temperatures to retain fruit aromas. After primary ferment it was gravity fed into older French hogs head barrels in our underground cellar for further maturing. It was left on light lees to develop further complexity for 6 months prior to bottling in early December 2019.
