ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2015 meant budburst happened 2 weeks earlier than usual. Normally this puts 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 Hilltops region is blessed with mostly drier and warmer days with some cooling relief at night due to its continental position. The fruit was harvested on 12th February 2016 at 13.4 Baume. The wine has been fermented in open fermenters with 1 week skin maceration post ferment. It has been matured for 10 months in old French oak.
Fruit Source: 100% Hilltops fruit from the Mullany vineyard
