Vintage

2017 was a fantastic year for winemaking in McLaren Vale. We had an extremely wet winter and our vineyards reached full saturation point. Spring brought very consistent fruit set and flowering. The rain continued throughout Summer and mild days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening season. These conditions resulted in fragrant whites with lower acidity, and elegant reds with very attractive primary fruit flavours and lower alcohols.

Vinification

The fruit was harvested at night, when sugar and acid equilibrium was optimum. Whole berries were pressed to capture the beautiful, soft fruit flavours. Post press, the juice was settled, followed by rack-off of the clear free-run. The wine was fermented between 12-16 degrees Celsius in stainless steal vats, without any sulphur additions, until the end of fermentation. Light filtration and early bottling helped enhance this soft, fruit driven wine.
