Fruit from the Funder and Diamond Vineyard Drive Block was employed; this north facing vineyard, planted in 1985 on red volcanic soils, is situated 230 metres above sea level. All grapes were hand-harvested and sorted prior to whole bunch pressing directly to French oak puncheons, 30% new oak, for a natural, wild-yeast fermentation. Post-fermentation, no malolactic conversion was allowed to preserve the naturally high acidity. The wine was aged on its fermentation lees with minimal racking for ten months prior to blending and bottling after a single filtration. Complex from the outset with pink grapefruit, lime leaf and ginger lily; on the palate, lime leaf, grapefruit, flint and minerals followed by brioche and lemongrass sitting over a crystalline citrus acidity. 2011 – 95 points in James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2013.
