Description

WINEMAKING

Part of the winemaking process was to preserve the fragile flavours and aromas of the two varieties. Both parcels were harvested during the cool nights of vintage to keep the fruit in good condition and retain the flavours and aromas. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, the juice was kept at 15°C to force the yeast to ferment slowly. Several yeast strains were used to create different flavours and mouth feel favourable for the two varieties. Post fermentation, the wines were racked off lees to preserve their clean and crisp characteristics. The batches were then blended and bottled.

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2016 Vintage produced elegant whites with great aromatics and finesse in the Great Southern, as there were very few hot days. This allowed a slow ripening period.
