Vintage conditions

Warmer periods during the latter part of the winter resulted in some un-even
budding, flowering and fruit set. The moisture levels in the soils were
satisfactory throughout the growing and ripening phase, and very little
moisture stress was noticeable on the vines. The late start to the 2021 harvest
was one of the distinguishing hallmarks of this vintage. The cooler growing
conditions of this vintage produced elegant wines with softer tannin
structures that will make them accessible and drinkable from an earlier age.

Vinification details

The grapes were crushed and immediately pressed to prevent too much colour extraction. The juice was then cold fermented at 130C until dry and kept on the lees for 3 months prior to bottling.
