Generally good conditions in the vineyard during the growing season producing a small but high quality crop. Grapes harvested March 15 and 16 at a Baumé of 12.6 degrees, pH 3.18, titratable acid 7.5 g/litre.

After overnight cooling, the grapes were lightly whole bunch pressed with the juice transferred to tank for settling over 4 days. Clear juice and some solids (grape lees) then transferred to new, second and third use French oak barriques for spontaneous fermentation by indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation induced in 40% of barrels. Matured in oak for 11 months before stabilisation and filtration.  Alcohol 14.0%.

Intense aromas of stone and citrus fruit, honeysuckle, cashews and subtle toasty oak followed by a rich and creamy palate finishing with a crisp citrussy freshness.
