Winemaking

Sourced from neighbouring properties in the northern sub-region of Margaret River (Yallingup). Meticulous management of bud numbers and shoot thinning ensured a balanced canopy for the crop to be ripened. Particular attention is paid to sourcing fruit from the well regarded gravelly soils of northern Margaret River. The 2013 vintage was a slightly warmer growing season in Margaret River. A few red varieties were harvested with slightly higher sugar levels, as we waited for the tannin’s to reach full maturity.

Each parcel of fruit was gently crushed into small open fermenters with traditional heading down boards where fermentation was carried out under strictly controlled temperature conditions. Gentle extraction (a Forester Estate style) was achieved by daily draining of wine away from skins and returning back over the top. The wine was pressed to tank after 10 days on skins where 50% was sent to new and older french barriques to complete the primary and malo-lactic ferment.

Maturation in tank and barrel lasted 20 months before the wine was carefully blended and bottled. Sealed under screw cap to retain freshness in a burgundy bottle.
