Description

These bush vines must be the most isolated vineyard we have in our cellar. Planted on a lonely hill surrounded by wheat fields and to many gates to remember, this vineyard stands very alone. Planted in 1978 on Malmesbury formation, with some influence of decomposed granite. It faces South South West and experiences the cooling summer wind of the afternoon South Wester blowing in off the Atlantic, only 16km away. It is this uniqueness that allows us to offer something of exceptional quality and interest. Matured for 11 months in a 2500L old oak foudre to maintain that poise and reflection of site.
