Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes

The fruit for this wine is sourced from a mature block in Nairne in the east of the Adelaide Hills with the balance from a block in eastern Oakbank subregion. Both blocks were harvested later in March and fermented independently with an average time "on skins" of 18 days. After 19 months barrel maturation, the wines were racked and blended. 70% from Nairne, providing the richness and density and 30% from Oakbank, offering more perfume and subtlety.

Serving Hints
This wine is ideally served slightly chilled, with dishes like pulled pork tacos or Peking duck pancakes.
