 VINEYARD

Sitting in the heart of Willyabrup, growing on rich gravelly loam soils, this 25 year old vineyard is imaculate, with no vines out of place, its almost perfect. It took a few years of begging to be able to pick fruit from this vineyard.  Planted by John Durack, who’s family were the first to bring cattle over the top end into the kimberly. This is the fifth year we have made wine from this incredible site.  The majority of this wine is made from gin-gin with a small percentage of clone three and five for additional complexity. 

 

WINEMAKING

Hand picked first thing in the morning, chilled overnight, whole bunch pressed and fermented/ matured in 80% amphora of different shapes and sizes. We hope that the different sized vessels of different porosity provide differing fermentation kinetics and oxygen uptake into the wine. Providing complexity and depth in the same way different oak barrels are used. We also matured and fermented the wine in a two new barriques for familiarity and structure.  A partial natural malolactic fermentation occured during its time in vessel softening the edges of the wine and providing length and depth.

 

WINE

Purity is the word that I think everytime I try this wine. Purity and elegance. Pure flavours of Willyabrup chardonnay, peach lemon, lime, green apple, a touch of cream and a hint of flint and struck match.  The wine will age gracefully for 10 years if cellared correctly.
