The grapes for this wine were sourced from a single vineyard in Wellington.
The grapes were harvested at 23 balling in lug boxes. In the cellar the grapes were fermented at between 18 and 22 degrees for 7 days on the skins and malo-lactic fermentation was done in tank. The wine was matured in shaven French barrels to ensure micro oxidation and polymerisation of the tannins with minimal wood.
This wine was bottled November 2017 and is very young at the moment. Only bottles 4430 were produced.
