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. Vines averaging 20 years of age give an abundance of concentrated fruit character. Selective leafplucking helps achieve full ripeness with well-balanced, fleshy flavours.
Winemaker Notes
Cold harvested at night. Carefully de-stemmed and crushed using fully protective handling to avoid juice oxidation. This preserves naturally vibrant tropical aromas and flavours. Juice brightly clarified and fermented very slowly at very cool temperatures in stainless steel vats. Bottled early under screw cap to preserve intensely perfumed aromas and fresh, fleshy tropical fruit showing integrated crisp acidity.
