Handpicked fruit from our vineyard nestled above the Clarendon township, at one of the highest sites in the McLaren Vale wine region. We have been farming this site without any herbicide, insecticide or systemic chemicals and use Indian Runner Ducks to forage undervine, and sheep and alpacas grazing over winter. Gentle handling and winemaking has been utilized every step of the way.
A wave of blue fruits, silky texture, elegance and spice.
Cold soaked prior to wild fermentation in an open-top tank, 20% whole bunch, gentle hand plunge only, then basket pressed to 3 year old French puncheons for 12 months. Only the best 4 barrels were selected for bottling.
Rib eye fillet, duck fat potatoes and steamed greens.
