- Winemaking Notes
Decadent and delectable flavours swirl generously over the wonderfully structured plate.
- Growing Conditions
Soil profiles at Chapel Hill reached capacity early in winter and set the vines up well for a challenging season. Budburst was at the usual time and a warm, dry spring followed. The conditions kept disease pressure low and reduced vine vigour and yield. Whilst summer started out very hot, the season cooled through January. February brought welcome rain to freshen up the vines. The cool weather continued into harvest allowing fruit to be picked at optimum ripeness and plenty of time for extra care in the winery.
