  • Food Matching: Rich seafood dishes or perhaps with lighter game birds or poultry.
  • Vineyard: Sourced from established vineyards planted in 1985 and 1986 on Hutton soils (decomposed granite) and planted at a density of 3200 vines per ha. Vineyard practices include vertical hedge trellising, spur pruning to 2 buds every 12cms and supplementary drip irrigation. Hand harvested from 31st January to 26th February, the yield was 5t/ha.
  • Vinification: The bunches were de-stalked and crushed, chilled and left over night in contact with the skins before pressing, settling and racking from the gross lees into 33% new French barriques where alcoholic and malo-lactic fermentation took place at about 21 degrees C. Battonage was performed once every 3 weeks during a total ageing period of 11 months.
