Sourced exclusively from the Hentley farm estate on the banks of Greenock creek at Seppeltsfield. The top soil is predominately a red clay loam, and the subsoil varies from shattered limestone to salt & pepper siltstone and bluestone at depth. All vines are grown on their own roots. The fruit was crushed and destemmed prior to fermentation, during which 2-3 pump overs a day were used to ensure that each wine achieved a full tannin structure. Time on skins ranged from 7-50 days before pressing and settling. The wine completed secondary fermentation in new (15%) and old (85%) French oak barrels, before blending in August, a total maturation period of 10 months. No fining or filtration was used in the production of this wine. – Winemaker, Andrew Quin
