Elegant and Textured

Winemaking: 

This wine was crafted with minimal intervention winemaking including wild fermentation and whole bunch pressings. Gentle pressings and handling of the grapes, coupled with light handed oak treatment has created a perfectly balanced wine with structure and fruit characters showing off the terroir and regionalist of Macclesfield. 

Vineyard:

The grapes were sources from the Saint-Clare Vineyard. Delicately handled, the grapes were hand picked on the nineteenth of February 2021. The cool climate of the Adelaide Hills has allowed the citrus notes to develop in the grapes.  The soil profile consists of a top layer of red-brown massive fine sandy loam with ironstone nodules, over reddish yellow and red medium clay with strong fine polyhedral structure and ironstone nodules. At depth, the clay is brownish yellow, light grey and red banded medium clay with strong blocky structure and ironstone nodules.
