    • Vintage Notes

      2021 was a terrific vintage for both vineyard quality and quantity. We had a wet spring followed by a healthy amount of sunshine and some well-timed rain in January, leading to large green healthy canopies. The overall temperature during the growing season was lower than average which led to a long slow ripening period and great concentration of flavours and natural acidity.

    • Winemaking

      A selected parcel of fruit from each of our five single vineyard sites was whole bunch pressed straight to 675 Litre open top Clay “Egg” vessels. After fermentation, the lids were sealed with clay and allowed to settle for 6 months. The wine was then racked to tank and bottled. No fining, no filtration.

    • Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential
