VITICULTURE

Climate

The timing of budburst was like previous years however the early part of the season was notable for lower sunshine hours, especially in November. January and February were extremely hot and dry, withering the surrounding hills and putting pressure on irrigation systems. This also brought forward the harvest by 10-14 days.  Warm, dry conditions over harvest meant the grapes could be picked with optimum flavour and without pressure from disease or rain. It was a dream harvest.

 

Soils

Silty loam over free draining gravels.

 

Training

Vertical Shoot Positioning. Standard vertical trellis.

 

Harvest Date

March 26th   2020

Also, a small portion of this fruit was hand harvested and let to undergo a wild fermentation in seasoned French oak puncheons. Post fermentation, the wine spent approximately 6 months on lees, after which the wine was blended, filtered and finally bottled locally August 2020.
