The word Meunier is French for ‘’miller’’ and refers here to the ‘’floury’’ appearance of the underside of the vines leaves. This wine is from the  Wollumbi vineyard on the southern reaches of the Southern Highlands. A cooler site exposed to the elements has produced a wine that is brick red in colour with more savoury and herb characters when compared to Pinot Noir.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2015 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this put us at slight risk to frost but some spring rainfall helped the frost stay away and ensured healthy growth in the vines. While it was a dry growing season, maximum temperatures were still moderate and the harvest dates for all varieties ended up falling back to the their expected times, not earlier as experienced in other grape-growing regions. The Southern Highlands always dances with danger at harvest time because of storms and autumnal rainfall which is why our vineyards are meticulously managed with extra measures such as leaf plucking and careful canopy management to ensure our fruit stays healthy and clean. The fruit was hand-harvested before being processed into open fermenters then hand plunged 3 times a day for 10 days. The wine was then pressed to old French oak barriques to finish MLF. It has enjoyed 10 months maturation and was blended and bottled in late February 2017
