Harvest Date

10 March 2017

Vineyards

Lenswood, Adelaide Hills

Viticulture

A long cool growing season across southern Australia. A settled flowering led to good crop levels. Careful canopy management and some crop thinning allowed for full flavour ripeness. We harvested early to retain freshness and natural acidity.

Wine Making

Fruit was hand-picked and whole bunch and gently pressed. Natural fermentation took place in French Hogs heads (50%), and the other half in tank to retain vibrancy. The wine was left on yeast lees to add complexity for 6 months, prior to bottling in September 2017.
