Vineyard Just out of Balhannah, Adelaide Hills
Soil Loam soils with a clay base
Season Sufficient rain in winter ensured a positive start to the growing season. There were periods of heat leading to a little early crop loss- almost a natural form of crop thinning! Fortunately, the canopy protected the ripening crop well beyond the early heat, to achieve our desired ripeness.
Winemaking Picked on a cool morning as the sun came up, with fruits from a couple of different aspects of the vineyard to ensure we achieved a balance of ripeness whilst retaining zesty acidity. With careful pressing to avoid colour pick up, the pristine juice was cold settled before racking for fermentation. Post fermentation we left a portion of the blend on lees to build palate weight and took a clean fraction to preserve the vibrant fruit before ultimately blending the two parcels together.
Winemaker Comments “The fruit is pristine and present, in balance with just enough weight to give a little texture to the zesty dry finish – Cheers”, Jules
