The Vineyard 

The fifth time working with this vineyard from Yallingup. A certified organic and biodynamic site at the northern end of the cape. For the previous few years the vineyard had been completely unkept and unpruned with no trellising. The vines sprawl everywhere where pigs, geese, guineafowl and cows roam free.

The site faces north with a little creek running through the middle of the vineyard. Native flowers and plants grow under the rows with no herbicides or pesticides sprayed. It is one of only four certified biodynamic vineyards in the region and was one of the first to receive Demeter certification.

 

Winemaking

The fruit was hand-picked and cooled, followed by bunch and berry sorting by hand. This led to to an almost black cavier apparence of fruit in the fermenters.  The fruit was naturally fermented as whole berries in large format barriques for 20-30 days. Plunged by hand and left to ferment at ambient cellar temperature with skins and seeds for 20-30 days prior to pressings directly back to the same barrels the wine fermented in.

The wine matured for 13 months in barrique and 3 months in tank prior to bottling. No fining and a light filtration (vegan friendly).

 

The Wine

A smooth, rich full bodied wine with dark rich fruit flavours of blackberry, blueberry strawberry and raspberry. Layers and layers of silky tannin through the extended maceration. A wine that can be put down for at least 10 years and comes into its own by decantering. A cabernet without comparison in Margaret River. 

Made with certified Organic and Biodynamic grapes
