Wine Making

Vinification: Free run juice taken and placed directly into new & seasoned French Oak barrels. Indigenous yeast ferment, matured for 12 months with regular battonage.

Vintage Conditions: Bud-burst date was on par with average after wet July & August. Spring was cool & damp which resulted in slow shoot growth. Fruit set was variable due to cool conditions but the weather stabilised in November, with excellent growing conditions through to February. A lack of any weather extremes, either heat or cool spells lead to favourable ripening conditions and excellent flavour development.

Vine Clone: Bernard 76

Harvest Date: March 15, 2022

92 Wine Pilot- “A gleaming pale gold hue, there is depth and complexity here. Good oak integration with notes of figs, peaches, cashews, stonefruit and a splash of citrus. Seamless with a long finish, good balance throughout and a flick of lime-like acidity. “- Ken Gargett March 2024

92 Wine Orbit- “Elegant and restrained, the wine shows white flesh stone fruit, lemon zest, oatmeal and roasted cashew nuances on the nose, followed by a finely flowing palate that’s beautifully rounded and smooth. Well structured by crisp acidity, offering elegance and finesse with a long refined finish.”- Sam Kim January 2024
