    Vinification Notes

    The grapes are crushed and de-stemmed into fermenters. Yeast is added immediately once in fermenter and the ferments are pumped over twice daily to maximise colour, tannin and flavour extraction. Cooling is used to ensure ferment temperatures remain in the 22-25 degree Celsius range which will allow the fruit to display maximum fruit expression. Pressing then occurs approximately seven days after crushing and the wine is then put into French oak for maturation for up to 12 months.

    Vintage Notes

    A warm dry spring led to into similarly dry conditions in December and January.  The warm weather brought harvest on in the first week of February.  A couple of good rain events led to milder conditions and a long even ripening period and excellent flavour development.  The wine from 2016 show typical Barossa warmth and generosity and should age well.
