Winemaking

This wine is produced from fruit grown on a single block in the Syme on Yarra Vineyard, Gruyere. This block is located approximately 150m above sea level and covers some of the most uniform clay loam soil profiles across the whole vineyard. The vineyard has a gentle east facing slope, minimising frost risk and maximising sunshine exposure, with good rainfall across the whole block. The vineyard is hand pruned with vertical shoot positioning and shoot thinned when required throughout the growing season.

This wine has been hand crafted with minimal intervention. Hand picking commenced early on February 25th, 2015. Grapes were then chilled overnight. 30% whole bunches and 70% whole berries underwent natural fermentation in a small open pot over a 14 day period with gentle hand plunging. Once dry, the ferment was left on skins for one week and then pressed to a mixture of new and old French oak barrels where it underwent natural malolactic fermentation. On completion of malo, the wine was sulphured then matured on lees for 10 months. This wine was carefully racked and then bottled.
