Overview

The 2020 growing season started off being quite warm to start off with and then developed into a typical mild day and cool night pattern in the all-important last two months of the growing season.

Picked in the cool of the night, the fruit is processed quickly to retain freshness. The clarified juice is then fermented cool to preserve fruit lift. The wine is left on yeast lees for 2 months to create a mouthfeel before being filtered and bottled.
