The Wine

Ripe fruit flavours with nuttiness derived from time on yeast lees.

The Grape Variety

Hand harvested fruit was crushed and pressed without time on skins. After pressing 10% was transferred to French oak while the balance went to tank. A combination of cultured and wild yeast was used to complete the fermentation. The wine remained on yeast lees for two months in tank to help build texture and palate weight. It was bottled with an alcohol of 14.0% a TA of 7.6g/l and a pH of 3.18.
