Tasting Notes

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

This wine offers aromas and flavours of freshly cut grass, nettles and juicy grapefruit. This rich fruit is brought to life by a fine vein of natural acidity, typical of the cool Darling Hills.

About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested in three stages between 21° and 23° Balling. The grapes harvested in the morning went directly to the sorting table and the night-harvested grapes spent the night in a refrigerated container.
In The Cellar
The grapes were de-stemmed before crushing and had skin contact for 6 - 12 hours. The juice was settled for 2 - 3 days, inoculated with cultured yeast, fermented at 13 - 16° C for 12 - 14 days and had lees contact for 3 months without stirring.

The wine was filtered and bottled in May 2006.
