Leading into the 2021 vintage saw fairly ideal growing condition that where warm and dry, Early February and January saw a cooling off and significant rain events that slowed down ripening and retained natural acidity. The only downfall with these conditions was the added pressure in the vineyards to control potential fruit split and disease. Fortunately our vineyards were unaffected and the fruit coming in was pristine.
Harvest Date February/March 2021
Fruit is hand picked and chilled overnight. The following day the grapes were tipped as whole bunches directly into our press and gently pressed off into a tank. Natural settling occurred overnight and the cloudy juice was then sent to French oak barrels twenty-four hours later. Wild fermentation was completed in barrel and allowed to mature on its own lees for six months, with minimal stirring during this time, to maintain freshness and natural acidity.
The nose shows fruit salad and pear through to a gorgeous soft palate. So Good! Enjoy now whilst the fruit flavours are in their prime.
