The clean, ripe fruit picked from our L5 Block was de-stemmed, chilled and gently pressed off to settle in a small stainless steel tank for 48 hours. The clear juice was racked off and warmed before being inoculated with yeast selected for achieving pure fruit expression. A long, cool fermentation took place over 21 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was racked, stabilised and filtered before bottling
The L5 Block is situated in a very exposed area right on the coastline of our Seaview Vineyard. It is the coolest, most extreme site on the vineyard and the subsequent wine reflects this terroir - mineral, salty, crushed oyster shell and wet stone are just a few of the flavours that characterise this unique wine.
