WINEMAKING NOTES
Following harvest in the cool of the morning, the grapes were cold pressed and free run and pressings kept separate. Natural settling of the juice produced bright juice to which an aromatic yeast was used to ferment the components to sugar dryness. Only the fine free run juice has been used to make this wine. The cool Adelaide Hills region has become renown for producing fine, elegant wines. This wine was sourced from Balhannah. Richard Hamilton is the fifth generaion of his family to farm grapes and craft wine.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS
2015 had very low rainfall and warmer temperatures throughout the growing season resulting in an earlier harvest than would be expected. The resulting flavours of wines are quite intense.
