VINTAGE REPORT

The 2021 Vintage was preluded by above average rain fall throughout the growing season and into the ripening period with a cooler than average summer. This lead to longer than usual berry maturation. With a long ripening period the grapes developed great depth and purity of flavour while maintaining prominent acid retention. The resultant wines are restrained with excellent balance and vibrant acid.


WINEMAKING

A single site wine from Echunga in the Adelaide Hills. North/westerly sloping vineyard. Picked early in the morning then juice pressed off cold skins. Free-run and pressing juice separated and after settling were fermented at 14’C to retain aromatics. All pressings were returned to the free run at blending.
