IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

This single-block wine is sourced from 1.2 ha of gently sloping 18-year-old vines in the Ferrous vineyard. These vines naturally produce low yields due to a combination of unique orientation, free drainage and high exposure. Along with this, the soil has a far greater prevalence of ironstone pebbles than any other part of the vineyard and delivers wine with great concentration and savoury tannic presence. This wine was fermented in a large-format concrete tank. The ferment, with 30% whole bunches, occurred spontaneously with ambient yeasts and lasted 18 days. Following fermentation, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barriques (25% new) and underwent indigenous malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked only once, with a total maturation period of 14 months. It was then bottled without fining or filtration.

The energetic and focused 2015 Ferrous shows the block’s typical sweet, earthy beetroot aroma along with undertones of fruitcake spice and wet stones. The deep palate has power and grace, driven by a core of dark, brambly fruit. This fruit weight is cut with tight gravel-like tannin, indicating that this Ferrous will greatly reward cellaring.
