Winemaking Notes

The wine was hand plunged and basket pressed to avoid over extraction, aged in old American oak with some Nevers French oak. The wine is bottled with no fining or filtration to achieve maximum colour & flavour retention.

Growing Conditions

The 2008 growing season had below average rainfall, but thankfully there was rain when it was needed. Favorable spring conditions led to a good fruit set. Fruit was picked early before the hot spell in March.
