      Winemaking [+]
      Grown in the Adelaide Hills on our shallow, rocky soil made up of mica shist, granite and clay loam.

      This Gruner was picked in the chill of the night, then kept on skins without sulphur for approx 6 hrs to softly extract some flavour and texture from the skins.

      The fruit was then softly pressed to a stainless steel tank, where it was initially encouraged to ferment with its own native yeast until we decided to inoculate, so we could finish the ferment strongly and at much lower temperatures.

      The wine was then settled, racked and lightly filtered before bottling.

      No maturation in oak took place with this wine.
