The fruit for this wine came from the Orange wine region in New South Wales. The fruit was harvested and immediately transported to our winery in the Hunter Valley where it was crushed. Primary fermentation took place in 5 tonne stainless steel fermenters before being pressed off to tank where malo lactic fermentation was allowed to finish. The wine was matured in 20% new French oak barriques for 18 months before being filtered and bottled.

Additional Information
Vintage Conditions

The 2014 vintage in Orange started early following a relatively short dry winter.Warmer than average temperatures in spring saw an early budburst followed by an equally warm summer that saw temperatures reach mid to high 30 degrees, with very little rain. Vintage began earlier than usual, and flavours were ripe and concentrated. Although quality is very high, quantity was low.
