The grapes for this wine were taken from our Cockfighter’s Ghost vineyard in the Broke sub-region of the Hunter Valley. The fruit was hand picked in the early morning and immediately whole bunch pressed and cold settled. The juice was racked clean and then fermented at cool temperatures in a stainless steel to retain varietal character and freshness. Upon completion of fermentation the wine was gently fined, filtered and bottled early.
The 2015 vintage is regarded as a classic Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage followed by a burst of wet weather in late February. Good vineyard management and winemaking has resulted in some of the best wines we’ve made.
