Viticulture >

Might as well say it straight up, 2021 was a sublime vintage in McLaren Vale, surely one of the best in a long time. Nature delivers good and bad, handing out vintage conditions without fear or favour and we make the most of what is delivered. It is just to cherish a vintage such as this, a reward for our farming endeavours we feel. A wet start to Spring, the wettest since 2010, combined with warmer than average temperatures, improved conditions for vine growth and health, and pushed flowering through nicely. A mild start to Summer, with only a short heatwave in January, helped keep vines hydrated and berries full. Veraison was later than average, which contributed to a long ripening period. March and April were mild and dry, which slowed down harvest and allowed for full flavour development with excellent natural balance. It was a year for patience in picking and we had time and nice space in the winery.

Winemaking >

This was a really fun wine to make for us, using a field blend approach. Both blocks were hand-picked together on the same day, April 1. Delivered to the winery where it was then gently de-stemmed and crushed into 4 tonne stainless open top fermenters, we aimed for 75% whole berries. A cold soak took place for 2 days, then fermentation was for 8 days, with a pump over taking place 2 times per day, 2 days post maceration, then lightly pressed to tank where the free run juice and pressings were combined. Once the wine was dry, 100% was sent to 3-4 year old French oak 400L puncheons, and 50% was kept in stainless, for a total of 6 months only, the process aimed to retain vineyard and fruit freshness. A light screen filtration, then bottling; completing the process on November 5, 2021 and sealed under Stelvin screw cap, also in Neutrocork premium. Vegan friendly wine.
