2018 was an absolutely fantastic vintage. Near-perfect fine conditions persisted throughout the region from mid-December all the way through to the end of harvest. The resultant fruit produced wines of exceptional flavour and robust acidity.
The grapes for this wine were picked and chilled before being gently pressed and settled. After being racked the must was fermented in stainless steel, with a small percentage fermented “wild” in barrel to enhance balance and complexity. We also experimented with 10% of the wine fermented with a high solids contact, for enhanced mouth feel and aromatics.
