Every year, Mother Nature challenges us to a game of hide & seek ~ The fun begins as we search hither & yon through our medley of vineyards scattered high & low across McLaren Vale’s diverse majesty ~ Our quest ~ to discover that secret place each vintage, where the variety & vineyard environment have conjured something above & beyond expectations ~ Then we respect this prized fruit by allowing it to express itself, pure & natural.- Hither & Yon.

The Shiraz fruit was hand picked in 3 lots, on March 8th, 9th, and 15th. Aim was to pick around 14 baume or just under for each parcel. Parcel’s were made separately using traditional techniques until final blending, each block about being about 1/3 of the completed wine. Once fermentation had commenced the must was pumped over 4 times every 24 hours. During ferment the must was kept between 22–26 degrees. Primary fermentation took place for 8-12 days. Once the wines were dry, they were pressed to tank where the free run juice and (50%) pressings were combined. We kept the parcels separate and then after 3 months in tank the wines were racked and the final blend was done. The wine was then transferred to 3-4 year old French Oak puncheons for 12 months. Following cross flow filtration, the wine was bottled on July 5th, 2019, sealed under Stelvin screwcap.
