Winemaking Process
Grapes hand-picked and grape must handled in a reductive style (without oxygen exposure). Must is kept chilled to preserve aromas. Gently pressed using a vacuum press. Fermentation initiated in French oak barrels using natural/wild yeast.

Maturation
Wine matured on the yeast lees for 10 months. 30% new French oak, rest in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels.

Tasting Comments
A rich, full wine with marmalade, honey and fresh peaches as well as orange blossom flavours integrated with subtle toasty French oak aromas. The wine has a creamy mouth feel with oregano and apricot flavours lingering on the aftertaste.
