Vintage Conditions – 2011 was an outstanding vintage in the Hunter and was every grape farmers dream – good yields of ripe fruit in pristine condition. The growing season saw above average rainfall which provided for good canopy growth and a fruitful flower set. January and February were hot and dry enabling the grapes to be harvested in prime condition with great sugar and flavour levels.

The grapes for this wine were handpicked on the morning of Saturday 12th of February. Upon receival at the winery they were de-stemmed, crushed, must chilled and fermented on skins for 6 days. The wine was then pressed off and matured in French oak barrels. In December the wine was blended, filtered and bottled.
