VINEYARD NOTES
The grapes for this wine are sustainably grown on our Fleet Road Vineyard - Tightrope Estate. Extensive work was done in the vineyard to make this wine. All the vines were shoot & leaf thinned and fruit was dropped to one cluster per shoot. The grapes were handpicked.

WINEMAKER NOTES
The grapes were whole-cluster pressed and the juice was cold settled for three days before being racked off solids. The juice was then racked to barrel for fermentation into a combination of French oak & Acacia barrels. Fermentation was carried out at 14 – 160 °C and took 14 days to complete. This wine was then aged on lees for 3 months to obtain a rich silky finish. Malolactic fermentation was not performed.
