This is a vintage permitting wine and I have been able to make it a few times. The fruit is now exclusively sourced from two Grenache vineyards in the north of the Barossa owned and farmed by the Waechter & Falkenberg families. The grapes are hand harvested earlier than red wine production and pressed (Vin Gris style) directly into a stainless steel tank where a cool, natural fermentation to bone-dry takes place on full solids. No additions or adjustments for this wine bar one barrel of Viognier, just prior to filtering and bottling under stelvin capsule.
