Winemaking Notes

Lo-Fi
Foot Trodden
Basket Pressed

A place to experiment, push the boundaries of winemaking fantasies. Made with just grapes and a whole lotta love. Wild yeasts, wild malo and no additions other than a little lick of sulphur to keep the nasty bugs at bay. Bottled hazy without filtration.

Growing Conditions

After a very dry July, August produced high rainfall, topping up the soil profiles. Early Spring was characterised by warm temperatures and increased rainfall followed by the dry conditions in November. The mild and dry conditions continued in January with daily maximum temps the coolest since 2003.
Throughout February and March, the region experienced ideal grape ripening conditions. The day-time temperatures were moderate, night-time temperatures were cool and there was no significant rainfall. Overall, grape yields were higher than average and fruit achieved physiological ripeness at lower Baume/ sugar levels.
