Winemaking Notes: Hand-picked in February and March.De-stemmed to open fermenter (20% whole bunch), short cold soak, natural primary and malolactic fermentation, 19 days on skins, pressed to French oak barrels (20% new).10 months in oak, racked once before bottling, unfined.
Viticultural Notes: Our Hill Road vineyard and winery is located at Coldstream, 40kms east of Melbourne in Victoria’s oldest grape growing region, the Yarra Valley. Grown on ancient, mountain derived sandy clay loams, these rocky soils combined with our forty-year-old vines are at the heart of this wine. The 2018 harvest will be remembered fondly by winemakers in the Yarra Valley. It was a rare season that gave above average yields and excellent quality fruit. Dry sunny conditions with cool overnight temperatures provided good natural acidity and concentrated wines at lower alcohol levels.
