The fruit for this wine was grown in the Broke/Fordwich sub region of the Hunter Valley, on deep sandy loam soils. The average vine age is 10 years.
The fruit was hand-picked in the early mornings at 12.5 Baume’ to maintain the lovely fresh green melon characters. Fermentation was relatively cool over 14 days in stainless steel tanks to maintain fruit purity.
