Tasting Notes: Cranberry, Raspberry, Citrus
Notes from James: 55% of the blend is a rolling coferment of 6 parcels. 3 clones Chardonnay, 2 clones Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc. Majority is whole bunch direct press with some bunches and de-stemmed fruit to add some nutrients, colour, texture and flavour. Additional barrels were blended to balance. All wines were aged in old French barrels on fine lees. 1 barrique of Tempranillo from Gumeracha found its way into the blend adding a touch of fruit sweetness which elevated the wine significantly.
