Harvest in their Bendigo vineyard commenced with perfect conditions. The grapes were hand picked between 27th March and 5th April. At the winery, the clusters were gently de-stemed into open fermenters. After a five day cold soak the must was allowed to warm and commence fermentation un-inoculated. The fermenting must was hand plunged 2-3 times a day to extract the colour, flavour and tannin structure. After fermentation the must was pressed into a mix of new and used French oak barrels.

A single vineyard wine, the fruit was sourced from Mud House's Bendigo Vineyard in Central Otago.

Long warm summer with cool nights, perfect ripening conditions.

This wine was matured in 100% French oak barrels. 25% of which were new and the remainder were a mix of older oak.
