Premium fruit was sourced from a local vineyard at Sellicks Hill which is situated at an altitude of 44 mtrs above sea level. The vines are 15 years old and all fruit was hand harvested.
Hand picked destemmed only, no whole bunch, cold soaked at 8ºC for 10 days before being allowed to warm naturally for fermentation. A long slow fermentation with 20 days on skins before being pressed off to all oak barrels, 30% new French. Matured for 20 months on lees before being racked to blend and bottled without finings and minimal filtration.
