About This Wine

This vineyard is located at the north-western end of the Mount Dandenong range at an altitude of 185 – 200m asl. The aspect of the block is south east, meaning the vineyard has less direct sun exposure in the hot summer afternoon. The Soils are rhyodacite rock (Devonian era volcanic eruptions over 400 million years ago), over a top soil of nutrient poor light grey loam, which is derived from the erosion of the rhyodacite rock. 

Once being handpicked on 12th March the grapes were brought back to the winery and split in two different parcels. One parcel was destemmed and saw 22 days on skins to maximise colour, texture and tannin extraction. Whereas the other component was treated as whole bunches, destemmed after 1 week and given a further 1 week on skins to develop further. Both batches were run to old French oak and new Austrian oak (Stockinger). After being raised in oak for 9 months, the wine was blended and bottled in January 2022 without fining or filtration.

The wine has been further aged in bottle for 18 months prior to release.
