A NOTE FROM THE WINEMAKERS

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 15 - 17°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 10 - 15 years

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.

SEASON

Tand 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. third new, for 10 months

WINEMAKING

This wine has fruit from 10-year-old MV6 and 115 vines from select blocks at Capella Vineyard. The fruit was handpicked and chilled overnight then destemmed and sorted by hand. It was vinified with wild yeasts in open fermenters with hand plunging. The wine was matured for 10 months in oak barrels from a selection of Burgundian coopers, about 40% new. Meticulous blending has created a wine that shows the best of Capella Vineyard and season 2017.
