VINTAGE

2015 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. Mild conditions in spring allowed good fruit set and yields were about average. Continuing cool and mild conditions promoted good flavour development balanced with fine acid. 

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked and whole bunch pressed then fermented in French oak barriques. Some barrels were inoculated with yeast and some were allowed to ferment naturally with wild yeasts. There was partial malolactic fermentation and the barrels were regularly stirred. The wine was matured in the same barrels for 10 months.
