Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine was hand harvested from the Williams Hill vineyard on the eastern slopes of the Waipara Valley. Vineyard soils are predominantly clay and limestone based. A superb season, very warm and with minimal rainfall. Uniform bud burst, no frost issues, and with great weather over flowering/fruit-set. The good weather continued all the way until harvest and there were no disease or picking issues to contend with. Ideal.

The fruit was passed over a sorting table before being 100% destemmed and crushed into small 1.5tonne open fermenters. Fermentation began naturally after an ambient soak of 3 days. The skins were regularly punched down and the wine spent a total of 26 days cuvaison before being pressed, settled and racked to French oak (25% new). The wine underwent a natural Malolactic fermentation and spent a total of 16 months in oak without racking. It was then blended and bottled in September the following year. The wine was not fined.

A dark, well weighted wine with dark red fruits intermixed with savoury and herb notes. Good palate structure and texture complimented by fine grained tannins, delicate oak and with excellent length."
