Fruit sourced from Black Sage Gravelbar, from 15 year old vines. Row orientation is North / South with a combination of organic and conventional viticulture produce high quality fruit with a real “sense of place”. Sustainably farmed with a crop level of 3.2 tons per acre.

Fruit was whole cluster pressed and allowed to settle before an indigenous fermentation began. Once a 4.5 brix depletion was reached we inoculate with yeast strains DV10 (barrel portion, 70%) and D47 (concrete portion, 30%) These strains help promote complexity and accentuate ripe fruit flavours. As soon as fermentation is complete the wine is racked and aged on light lees for 5 months in a 500 liter puncheon and 300 liter concrete upright barrel. Stylistically we perform Battonage once every 2 weeks during the aging process to bring weight, texture and length. The wine is then stabilized, filtered and bottled. Simple but sensible winemaking.

Tasting Notes:
Delicious aromas of apple blossom, pear, wildflowers and pineapple leading to a full mouth-feel of fruit, texture and a persistent mineral backbone. The wine finishes with bright juicy acidity and remarkably long finish.
