Vineyard Notes
Produced from grapes grown at Strathlynn on the west bank of the Tamar River, 70km from Pipers Brook. In contrast to our sites in the northeast, which are close to Bass Strait and subject to strong maritime influences, the Tamar Valley’s hillside slopes offer vines some protection from prevailing westerly winds. This promotes warm, settled conditions for much of the growing season. The West Tamar has surprisingly low rainfall. Sites in the Tamar Valley are a mixture of brown Chromosol and Vertosol (black cracking clay) soils. Both soil types have excellent water holding capacity, offering a steady supply of moisture and nourishment to the vines throughout the growing season. Vines are grown predominantly on cane-pruned, Vertical Shoot Positioned (VSP) trellises, which help to expose bunches to the sun.
Winemaker Notes
Selectively picked in the cold morning hours, the naturally chilled fruit was crushed to press where it soaked on skins for 6 hours before gentle pressing. This juice was then cold settled and transferred to a combination of barrel and stainless-steel tanks for fermentation. Wild fermentation was allowed to commence prior to inoculation with Saccharomyces yeast. Following primary fermentation, the wine was aged on lees to give fullness and texture prior to blending and bottling.
