Vinified predominantly from fruit grown to very low yielding Mendoza clones, planted ton the neighbouring Craighall property over twenty years ago. Hand picked grapes are whole bunch pressed through a Willmes membrane, indigenous yeasts initiate ferment of the freshly pressed, unsettled juices, at temperatures of 15°C to 20°C, in a combination of seasoned and new Burgundian oak barriques. These wild yeasts slow the onset and duration of ferments, achieving a textural, multi faceted wine. Lees stirring is employed to enhance complexity and vinosity, some components are treated to malolactic, ferments are arrested as the perfect balance is reached, followed by ageing on gross lees for a year. Alcohol 13.5%
Bright, light straw colour. Aromas of nectarine, white peach and delicate grapefruit blossom are full of promise even before the first sip. A very fine entry opens out to a silky, supple mid palate, a simply delicious spread of flavours and weight of fruit. Enticing, freshly baked, old fashioned apple pie scents, irresistible. A creamy, mealy character further fills out the perfectly balanced palate.
