Neck of the Woods:
Bendigo, Central Otago.
This sexy, understated wine exudes elegance with persistent bright red fruit.
The hand harvested fruit was picked from each vineyard at optimal ripeness which occurred on average one month earlier than normal in 2018.
The lower (warmer) site was harvested first with the two clones co-fermented in one vessel with 20% whole clusters.
The terraced site came a week or so later and was fermented in 2 vessels with 15-25% whole clusters. Including fermentation of about seven days, the average time on skins was 25 days. All three ferments were pressed to 2bar with no press cuts and were settled over night before going to barrel.
The wine underwent full malolactic fermentation and was aged in fine grain french oak barrels (28% new) for around 11 months before all components were blended in preparation for bottling.
