Many grapes are picked. Not all are chosen. But as we seek eloquent expressions of site and season there are some special spots in the vineyard that assert themselves immediately; a row of vines that can stop a winemaker in their tracks, a small planting that has achieved perfect harmony and resonance with the sun and soil.
This wine was Chosen from just such a place. The 777 clone is widely planted in our Parkburn Vineyard, but this particular block was identified early as having great potential to create this, a wine of great purity and presence.
Expect to see this youthful wine transform and evolve over a decade or more; please be aware a fine deposit may occur as a result of our minimal handling philosophy.
