Character

Medium straw-yellow. Fresh on the nose, with citrus, nuts, and floral notes. Characterful and minerally on the palate, with beautiful creamy nuances. Excellent ageing potential.

Winemaking

Hand-picked and hand-selected grapes. Cold maceration ('cold soak') followed by wild-yeast fermentation. Maturation for 20 months on the lees in 23% first-use French oak barrels (Taransaud and Darnajou), with regular bâtonnage (lees stirring). Malolactic fermentation also occurred during this time. After a short time in stainless steel, the wine was bottled unfiltered.

Terroir

Historic vineyard on Westside Road, which the Rochioli family have farmed for almost 80 years. The site's predominantly sandy loam soils were derived from sedimentary formation in alluvial fans.
