2015 VINTAGE

Winter of 2014 was colder and drier than normal leading to a warm, dry spring that saw good even bud break and consistent healthy shoot growth.  A cooler than average summer coupled with good rain at the right times saw consistent, healthy growth in all blocks. The season proceeded in a very even and pleasing fashion. A very cool dry March led to a longer ripening period allowing for maximum flavour development with good rain occurring at the right time to maintain vine health.

Harvest started on 18 February and the 2015 vintage proceeded exceptionally well. With the ripening period so even, all fruit was picked in optimum condition. All the fruit arrived at the winery in excellent condition with excellent fruit flavours and terrific natural acidity. Early indications are that the 2015 vintage will be as good as the highly regarded 2010 and 2012 vintages.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was crushed and pressed, settled overnight and transferred to 500L French oak puncheons with full solids (20% new).  Natural yeasts, warm ferment temperatures (commencing naturally after 10 days and completed in 22 days).  The wine was matured without malolactic fermentation, on lees, until bottling in February 2016. No additions except so2.

 

TASTING NOTE

Pure and delicate. Incredibly detailed aroma. Tightly wound with precise mineral intensity. Long, lingering finish.
