The vines are trellised and planted on deep red oakleaf soils. Viticultral techniques have evolved, monitoring vineyards for optimal picking times, adopting a combination of sampling and tasting to optimize from greener (pyrazine) to richer tropical (thiol) notes. A good cold wet winter, a mild spring and a warm summer with no significant heat waves led to longer, even ripening of the fruit, and helped produce a new quality benchmark for our wines.
The grapes were harvested from un-irrigated vineyards in Darling by machine from very early in the morning, arriving at the cellar before sunrise.
