The 2022 growing season and the subsequent harvest was defined by frequent and timely rain and a warm dry ripening period. This combination of nature’s irrigation from October through December left the vines quite happy with prolonged flowering and good fruit set. The superb ripening weather that followed from January through the end of April really delivered quality fruit.
Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 4th April. Whole bunch pressed, minimum settling followed by natural fermentation and aged on yeast lees for 6 months during which full malolactic fermentation occured.
