Wine specs

Vineyards

The vineyards are planted in the south facing blocks on the lower reaches of the farm as well as within view of the sea, in sandy, gravelly and highly weathered soils with a clay substructure. The vines are trellised on a 5-wire hedge system and pest and disease control is managed according to the IPW rules and standards.

Wine specs

Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand at 22 ̊ to 24 ̊ Balling.
Each vineyard bock was vinified separately. The juice was cold-fermented between 13 ̊ C and 15 ̊ C to preserve the natural grape flavours. The wine was left on the lees for 4 months before being racked.
The estate blend was then created using elements from various blocks to ensure that the result is greater than the sum of the parts. this wine which over-delivers in every aspect.
