THE FINER DETAILS

TASTING NOTES

Fruit from select blocks at our Capella Vineyard was handpicked, destemmed and sorted by hand to ensure only the finest berries went into this beautifully perfumed, supple and silky wine. Try it with duck cooked confit in the French way, or Peking style; wild mushroom and truffle risotto; roasted quail and seasonal vegetables.

VINTAGE

Vintage 2016 was marked by warm and dry conditions and the Mornington Peninsula harvest was one of the earliest on record. It arrived in a hurry too, catching some vignerons by surprise; many were picking very early in February. The resulting wines have excellent flavour and weight and tend to be earlier drinking styles.

WINEMAKING

This wine is a mix of clones MV6 and 115. The fruit was handpicked in early-February and chilled overnight before processing. The bunches were destemmed and the berries sorted by hand. The must was cold soaked for a few days and the ferments were hand plunged twice daily. The wine was matured for 10 months in barriques, 40% new, from a range of carefully selected Burgundian coopers.
