General Characteristics: Medium Dry / Medium Bodied

Cellaring: Made for immediate enjoyment but will improve over the next 2-3 years

Vintage Conditions: Warmer temperatures and consistent winter–spring rains made for an early budburst. We had half of it picked before the late January rains began and once dry, perfect conditions followed as the added soil moisture kept night time temperatures low allowing the fruit to retain its natural acid. Last trucks coming in by the first week of February allowing us to have it on shelves for spring.

Winemaking: Fruit classification was based on those vineyards showing flavour expression characteristic of Sacred Hill quality. Healthy balanced vineyards profiling fresh stone fruits and a natural acidity were chosen for this wine style. This wine was fermented cool over a two week period. Selected parcels were fermented with the inclusion of French oak staves. Once fermentation was complete exceptional wines were matured on fine yeast lees over 4 months to build palate weight.
