Fruit for this blend came from three select sites: the Tempranillo from dry-grown, low-yielding vines grown in terra rossa soil in the Clare Valley; the Grenache from ancient vines in the high sands of the Blewitt Springs subregion of McLaren Vale; and the Mataro from old bush vines grown in sand loam in the Ebenezer subregion of the Barossa Valley.

WINEMAKING

The focus for this wine was on blending the three varieties to ensure adequate fruit expression, while allowing some of the more textural and savoury qualities of these varieties to sing, and ultimately creating something balanced, interesting and harmonious. Each variety was fermented in small open fermenters with twice daily gentle pigeage. The Mataro was given a brief cold soak before pre-ferment to encourage the extraction of fruit character over tannin. 15% of whole bunches were included with the Grenache. Wines were basket-pressed and matured for 9 months in a combination of neutral French oak puncheons and stainless steel prior to filtration and bottling in February 2021. 

Alc/Vol: 14.5%
