Grape Growing
Very low yields and hot ripening conditions meant that the 2019 vintage was early and condensed.

Wine Making
After harvest the grapes were chilled overnight and then fermented as 80% whole bunches in open jarrah fermenters for around 10 days. Very gentle pumpovers twice a day allowed for the tannins to slowly infuse into the wine.  The wine was pressed off into stainless steel tanks to complete malo-lactic fermentation. After 2 weeks of settling, the wine was racked off gross lees into seasoned French barriques. Bottling took place on February 10th 2020. The wine has had 6 months in bottle to settle and resolve.
