2019 was our lowest yielding year on record. Another warm, dry year which produced very good wines across the board. Windy conditions during flowering also resulted in super low yields. These low yields meant that fruit quality was excellent and natural acidity remained high. This wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the primary fruit flavours.

A combination of fermentation techniques including barrel, wild, malolactic and stainless steel were used to build texture and complexity. The wine then spent four months on yeast lees to build secondary complexity into the palate. To contribute some delicate floral notes, a dash of Arneis was added to the final blend.
