Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this wine is sourced from Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. Harvested in Mid-March, only the free-run portion of the juice was sent to the barrel for fermentation. It was matured for eight months with some gentle lees stirring in 100% French oak, 25% new puncheons and a combination of 75% one-and-two-year puncheons.

Serving Hints
This wine is ideally served chilled with a leek tart or spinach and cheddar croque monsieur.
