Winemaking notes:

The fruit is sourced from a vineyard located in close proximity to the Cowaramup Township. The grapes were picked by taste at optimum ripeness. A portion of the must was cold soaked for 3 – 5 days prior to fermentation to enhance colour and flavour extraction. Fermentation was conducted in stainless steel vats between 22-28°C before being pressed to a combination of French and American oak. The wine was then matured in these small oak vessels for approximately 15 months before being individually selected for the final blend. Once blended the wine received a light protein fining to soften the palate and improve tannin structure.
