in the vineyard : The grapes, planted between 1977 and 1996, were sourced from trellised vineyards on the estate located 220m to 350m above sea level which grow in decomposed granite and lime soils with clay substructures. The vines are all grafted onto nematode resistant Richter 110 rootstock.
Viticulturist: Eben Archer

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested by hand at 23.8° Balling in mid-February with yields averaging 10 tons per hectare.

in the cellar : Each vineyard was individually vinified. Once the grapes had been crushed, the mash was cooled and fermentation took place between 12° and 14° C over two weeks. There was no skin contact. The wine was left on the lees for three months to concentrate the flavours.
