About The Harvest
We experienced a warmer than usual picking season, which made securing optimal ripeness a bit of a challenge. We set out early morning to hand-pick before the temperatures picked up. The grapes harvested, displayed good concentration of ripe fruit.
In The Cellar
The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and made in a fresh style to maintain the natural flavours.
