This month in the Cellar…

Malolactic ferment in the Syrah and Pinot Noir is well under way, with all barrels crackling away as the bacteria do their thing. The Pinot Gris 2017, which is still in barrel, tastes absolutely amazing, with real concentration and length. Very exciting, Im thinking about bottling this soon…

Out in the Vineyard…

Budburst happened almost on cue in most varieties, around mid-late September. An unusually wet spring so far has seen plenty of green growth in grass and vine. At this stage of the season when the shoots are growing, with only 1-3 leaves visible we are busy applying sulphur (organic) to the vineyard as a protectant against the dreaded Powdery Mildew. Touch wood no sign of frost at all this season. May it stay that way…

RIESLING Block Three 2014

A highly aromatic Germanic-styled wine with a naturally lower level of alcohol and an off dry level of sweetness perfectly balanced with vibrant natural acidity. In line with our natural winemaking philosophy this wine has not been fined or cold stabilised.ish of soft red fruits and florals.

Pinot Gris Selection 2016

“Bright, even straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-gold hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly presented with pure white and yellow stonefruit aromas along with white florals and a subtle amalgam of nutty lees and oak hints, unfolding a little honeysuckle. This is delicate, but grows in depth and intensity with aeration.”
