Winemaking Notes:  2021 vintage conditions were absolutely flawless for the production of cool climate white varieties in the Adelaide Hills.  The 2020/2021 growing season was the coolest in over ten years, recording no heatwaves and only 9 days over 35 degrees and only one over 40.  Over the growing season the average temperature was over 1.2 degrees cooler than the LTA of 17.2 degrees and we had harvest dates more like the 1980/90.   This long; even seeming to be dormant growing season ensured the maximum flavour development with little disease pressure experienced in most cooler vintages. 2.4 tonnes of Arneis fruit were machine harvested in the cool of night from the K1 Vineyard in Kuipto forest, after arriving it was destemmed without crusher operating and sealed up in stainless steel tank under a blanket of Co2 cover for a cold soak on skins for five days.  This process enhances varietal character and makes for a bolder richer wine with more texture and mouthfeel.  It was then delicately pressed and sent to seasoned French oak where it was fermented wild for 14 days.  After the wine was dry it was racked off gross lee’s and sent back to oak for 6 months in seasoned French oak with lee’s stirring weekly. The barrels were then blended and bottled Vegan Friendly.
