Vineyard Notes
100% Hazel’s Vineyard - certified biodynamic in 2020. Our southernmost vineyard characterised by coarse ironstone gravel loam soil, Southern Ocean breezes, a northerly aspect and plenty of Margaret River sunshine.
Winemaker Notes
All fruit was de-stemmed but not crushed into concrete fermenters, with a 5-day cold soak before wild fermentation. Post fermentation, the wines were pressed to French barriques in our underground cellar. Wines were matured for 15-months before being racked and bottled after a coarse filtration.
Other Notes
Vintage Report - Vintage 2019 required meticulous vineyard management as a result of cooler than average temperatures, wet conditions and low sun exposure. Careful canopy management, precise picking decisions and accurate fruit sorting were essential for producing high quality wines. The Marri trees didn’t blossom and the birds were hungry resulting in a lower than average yield despite our extensive netting program. Smaller canopies in our dry farmed vineyards and regular leaf plucking enabled us to pick ripe, clean fruit and produce whites with excellent purity and great natural acidity. Reds benefited from the long ripening season showing elegant tannins and great aromatic lift.
