MATURATION
The block was hand picked in the cool of the morning and transported to the winery. Fermented in an open fermenter with 30% whole bunch included. Once ferment was finished the wine was pressed off skins to French oak puncheons (30% new) for 18 months maturation before being blended and prepared for bottling.

VINEYARD / SOIL
The Orange region of New South Wales is one of Australia's newest premium regions being favoured for its high altitude cool climate.  Situated approximately 270km west of Sydney the topography and soils of the Orange region are dominated by the extinct volcano, Mt Canobolas.  The present day peak of the mountain is at 1400m and vineyards in the region are planted at elevations as high as 1100m with the lowest elevations in the region being 600m.

Soils in the central part of the region are derived from the basaltic lavas of the old volcano and primarily consist of deep red to brown free draining clay loams.

NOTES
A showcase of changing wine style and superb vintage conditions. Made using whole bunches, this wine is intensely fragrant and structured. Bright cassis and violets on the nose provide an evocative look into a complex palate of red and blue fruits, dark spice notes and a refined acid length. This wine was fun to make and we hope you enjoy it.
