WINEMAKING NOTES

The fruit for this wine is a blend of Clone 548 (39%) , Mendoza (33%) an Clone 15 (29%) grown on the sandy silt soils of the lower terrace of the Askerne vineyard. Hand-picked and whole bunch pressed, the juice was transferred to barrel for fermentation. The barrels were a mixture of both wild and inoculated ferments and completed 100% malolactic post ferment.  The wine was subsequently aged for 10 months with lees stirring to add volume and complexity. The final blend has a 32% new French oak component, and 25% 2nd fill.
