WINEMAKING & VINTAGE
Well, you thought 2021 was good but I bet you hadn’t heard about 2022 yet!
With most of the country experiencing extreme La Niña conditions, in McLaren Vale we were hit with the lucky stick and enjoyed plenty of soil moistening rain through the winter but no extreme events.
Budburst was a breath of new life after a long cool Winter and conditions were ideal up to flowering where things went a bit haywire. Crazy Melbourne type weather blew a lot of the flowers away before they could turn into fruit... but less fruit, more quality and coming off a bumper 2021 vintage it helped balance things out.
We had a lovely cool summer, which helped ripening happen nice and slow, just the way we like it. Vintage was well spread out with fine days through most of March allowing us to choose when to pick and preserve stunning, natural acidity.
|Vinification:||The grapes were picked at optimum sugar and flavour equilibrium. Tipped into open top fermenters, they were gently hand plunged for around 20 days, extracting the vibrant characteristics of the vineyard. When primary fermentation was complete, we pressed to stainless steel tanks for malolactic fermentation and brief ageing before bottling nice and early to preserve freshness. No sulphur dioxide or preservatives were added in the making of this wine however, sulphur dioxide is a natural by product of the fermentation process.|
