Fruit was sourced from our Murphy Vineyard planted in the mid 60’s on the acclaimed alluvial sandy loam soils. Fruit was picked in the cool of the morning by hand and transported to the winery in small 10kg
buckets. 100% destemmed, crushed and settled overnight. The juice is racked and a selected yeast added for primary fermentation in stainless steel. Fermentation temperatures are maintained between 14-16°C to retain pristine fruit characters. Post fermentation the wine is prepared for early bottling.
