Viticulture

Our aim in the vineyard is to grow the best fruit we can so it can speak of its home and express its personality. To do this you need healthy vines and soil. By practicing organics and incorporating some biodynamic principles we believe we are doing our best to help achieve this and let our vineyards evolve and speak as they would like.

Winemaking

The grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed. The free run juice was lightly settled before racking to ferment into two stainless steel barrels with organically cultured yeast, and into a neutral seasoned oak barrel. This allowed a spontaneous ferment with indigenous yeasts. The wine was then aged on full ferment lees for 8 months prior to bottling.
