Region: Eden Valley
Bottle size: 750 mL

Distributed in Australia by Samuel Smith & Son. Distributed in the UK by Negociants UK
Winemaker: Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela
Growing conditions: Lower yields and a warm, moderate January provided an early start to our harvest in late february. A sudden rain event in early february marked a change to unseasonably mild conditions allowing us to pick vineyards at optimal ripeness without loss of natural acidity.
Winemaking notes: Fermented in a 6 tonne open fermenter with 7 days skin contact and twice daily pump-overs. Matured in shaved, seasoned (two to five year old) french oak hogsheads for 11 months.
