    Chenin Blanc

    Sourced from one of the most northern blocks in Clare Valley, this Chenin vineyard is around 55 years old. It was picked around 11.5 baume and half is then destemmed and pressed while the other is whole bunch fermented in an open tank for 13 days. The juice was transferred into an old 500L French oak puncheons and a couple new Russian oak Puncheons. Left to ferment in oak to dryness for about 5 months, racked from oak once and a small amount of sulphur added before bottling.
