Winemaking Notes:
The majority of this wine was grown in McLaren Vale and harvested early in the season to ensure delicacy and natural acidity. The pinot noir was allowed to undergo malo-lactic fermentation to enhance the creaminess of the palate and the components have been allowed to mature on primary yeast lees for 4 months to give the wine a luxuriant texture. Following natural secondary fermentation, the wine was liqueured ready for consumption.
