About The Harvest

We experienced a warmer than usual picking season, which made securing optimal ripeness a bit of a challenge. We set out early morning to hand-pick before the temperatures picked up. The grapes harvested, displayed good concentration of ripe fruit.

In The Cellar

The grapes were whole bunch pressed in order to minimize tannins and maintain fruit and elegance in the wine. Only the first half of pressed juice was used for the final product to minimize the extraction of colour.
