Case: 6 bottles

Similar to previous vintages in its elegance and fineness after a near
perfect 2017 vintage. Subtle flavours reflective of the aromas – particularly
lemon, grapefruit, stone fruit and elegant oak. The wine has a soft middle
palate with good length and a nice acid balance. Similar in structure to
the 2016 vintage but perhaps more linear.

  • Hand-picked fruit was gently whole-bunch pressed into
    a tank and settled overnight. It was then transferred into French oak
    puncheons (12.5% New, 25% second use, 12.5% third use and 50%
    fourth use) and inoculated with a neutral yeast. From May until late winter
    the barrels were stirred every two weeks until MLF was completed. For
    this vintage 30% completed MLF. The wine was left on yeast lees until
    November when it was transferred to tank to prepare for bottling. The
    wine was bottled early January 2018, 10 months after harvest.
