SEASON: 2017 really was a sensational vintage! Good intermittent rainfall with cool to mild temperatures, and not a day over 40 degrees during the summer months marked 2017 out as a classic cool climate vintage. All varieties came in later than average, ripening at an unhurried pace in these ideal growing conditions, producing wines of incredible structure, detail and length.

Natural winemaking philosophy, while making quality the priority. Mini­mal intervention in the vineyard and 100% hand-picked.
Whole bunch pressed.
Fermentation in a ceramic egg vessel using indigenous yeasts to allow exploration of the kinetics of egg vessels compared to oak or stainless steel.
No malolactic fermentation.
No fining, no filtration.
