The grapes were picked during the cool of the night to maintain fresh varietal flavours then de-stemmed and pumped into the press. Only the best quality free run juice was taken off and clarified before adding yeast. The ferment was carried out at cool temperatures until dry. After some time on the lees, the wine was blended and bottled.

Vintage conditions

‘Late but great’ sums up the 2017 vintage. Good rain in spring, followed by mild weather and only short heat waves resulted in grapes ripening slowly on the vine. It was certainly an unusually late harvest but the wines are something to be proud of – well balanced fruit, plenty of flavour and distinct varietal aromas.

Vinification details

Once harvested, the fruit was crushed, pressed and settled before fermentation. Yeast for fermentation was selected to enhance the naturally occurring flavours and characters in the grape. Post fermentation, the wine was stabilised, clarified and bottled in its youth to retain fresh tropical flavours.
