Grown and crafted by Pipers Brook Vineyard, in a fresh style that pays homage to the history and story of the classic Pipers Brook Estate range of wines.
Harvested during the cool early morning temperatures, the grapes were destemmed without delay, except for a small percentage of whole bunches which were added directly to the fermentation vessels. The fruit was allowed to soak at cool temperatures for 5-7 days before wild fermentation commenced, then inoculated with cultured yeast and fermented at between 25-30°C in stainless vessels. The wine was gently pressed off skins using both a basket press and bag press prior to full malolactic fermentation. Bottled under a screw cap to preserve intensely perfumed aromatics and expressive fruit.
