In the heart of Taungurung Country (Heathcote), the Carménère grapes for this remarkable wine were nurtured through sustainable farming practices. Carefully tended with respect for the land, they flourished under the watchful eye of nature’s guardians.
The winemaking journey continued with two weeks of daily pumpovers, where the grape skins and juice intertwined, extracting vibrant flavors and deepening complexity. Once the desired expression was achieved, the wine was gently pressed, ready to embark on its resting phase.
Resting peacefully in old French oak barrels, this Carménère found solace for a period of seven months. Within the embrace of these seasoned vessels, it developed layers of character and refinement, gracefully maturing into a wine of distinction.
