VINTAGE

Vintage 2017 was generally cool and harvests were around two weeks later than average in most areas, allowing a good ripening period to produce fruit of high quality and well-balanced flavour and acid.   

WINEMAKING

The fruit was harvested by hand in warm, dry conditions in late February. It was chilled overnight before destemming and a period of skin contact. The fruit was pressed and fermented in barrel, mostly older French barriques. The wine was matured in the same barrels for six months. We recommend early consumption to best enjoy the bright fruit and fresh flavours of this wine.
