Grape Growing
North facing and planted in 2003.  Blue and red clay over sandstone with schist and ironstone.  The Merlot sits in the warmer pocket at the top of a gully. This is the first year we have made a straight Merlot. It will open up nicely with a bit of air.

Wine Making
100% de-stemmed to tank for fermentation. Two weeks on skins with gentle pump overs. 8 months in seasoned French oak hogsheads.
