Description

Winemakers
Notes

Grapes were hand harvested from our high density planted (5,000 vines per hectare) Brookby Hill Vineyard. The grapes underwent wild fermentation, with 40% whole-bunch for an increased lift in aromatics and structure. 75% of the resulting wine was aged in 4,500L French oak cuves, while 25% went into seasoned French oak barrels. Both portions were aged for 11 months. In pursuit of the highest quality, we have not filtered this wine.
