Description

The fruit is hand harvested from very low yielding organic vines in the Witchcliffe. The grapes were crushed, destemmed and then pumped into small overhead fermenters and inoculated with yeast immediately. The ferment was allowed to reach 30°C and pumped over with oxygen regularly during the peak of fermentation. This allows maximum extraction of the fine tannins, flavour and colour from the skins. Post fermentation - the free run wine was run off into seasoned French oak barrels and then the remaining solids were basket pressed into barrels and left to mature for 18 months. The varietal components were blended, minimally fined and filtered prior to bottling.

“Fruit from Witchcliffe. Matured in French oak for 18 months. Extraordinarily pure and fine, the fruit is jubilant, bouncy and largely unrestrained by oak, however the impact of oak can be felt in the mouth – the tannins are soft and silken. This is a gorgeous little wine, leafy, bright and uncomplicated. So much to enjoy.”
