Winemaking by Nick Haselgrove



Fruit for this release again comes from a single vineyard planted in 1910 in McLaren Flat, grown by our friend Pino! Rich, concentrated fruit was handpicked then open fermented before being put to a seasoned oak barrels to finish fermentation and then mature for 26 months. Barrel selection is made for site expression.

This wine has long term potential which will augment the savoury fruit characters expressed by this terroir in  McLaren Vale. As we want this wine to mature gracefully in the bottle we have decided to use DIAM cork for quality cellaring that will still allow the wine to slowly develop complexity and regional nuances.
