Fruit

100% Petit Verdot. The fruit was grown on our Riverland Vineyards.  The quality of the Petit Verdot grape was pivotal, as it had to preserve a full intensity and complexity of flavours while containing the dryness and delicacy of structure the wine now has.

Vinification

Vinification

After harvesting in the cool of night, the free run juice was drained once the colour and flavour was deemed right by the winemaker. Careful reductive handling was employed to ensure that the juice was not oxidised and freshness was maintained. Cold settling of the juice at 1oC for a week ensured a crystal clear juice was admitted to fermentation. Different yeast strains were used to add complexity to the wine and to build additional mouthfeel and to add fruitiness. The wine has been held in temperature controlled vessels throughout its life at 10-12oC to maintain freshness and avoid premature aging.
