High altitude, cool climate - our Nepenthe Altitude collection are wines that showcase the unique and diverse provenance of our home in the Adelaide Hills.
Sourced from premium vineyards, this wine exhibits a genuine varietal character with a distinct send of place. The fruit was picked in the cool of the night. Crushed and pressed oxidatively to avoid colour pickup, the juice was clarified and then yeast added.
A cool 3-week ferment ensured maximum fruit retention. Once the ferment was finished the wine was left on yeast lees for 6 weeks to develop mouthfeel. The wine was then clarified and bottled.
