Description

It has flesh and it’s beautifully formed and not a hair is out of place. This is not an awkward wine in any way. Macerated cherries, spices, a light spray of garden herbs, a satiny aspect to the texture. It’s a smooth talker but not in a compromised way; it goes about its business in a polished manner.

Winemaking Notes

All grapes hand harvested and sorted prior to destemming 100% of the berries into an open fermenter. Fermentation proceeded naturally and lasted 19 days prior to pressing to a mixture of French oak barrels, of which 15% were new. Wine remained on its gross lees for 10 months prior to blending and bottling after a single filtration.

Growing Conditions

Hazeldene Vineyard Block 1. North facing at 180 metres above sea level. Planted in the red volcanic soils of Gladysdale in 1998 using the MV6 clone and cropped at 6.3 t/Ha.
