2018 Chenin: 221 doz made. From a vineyard on the sea side of Caves Road, further south in Wilyabrup. Also on the sea side of Caves Road, further south in Wilyabrup. Close planted on loam over ironstone gravel in the mid 80s. Wild fermented with cloudy juice in two new (20%) and old barrels. A quarter on its skins for a bit over a week, this portion was basket pressed, gave heaps of texture & grip plus some pretty funky flavours. No MLF and ~12 months in oak. No acid additions, no fining & no filtration for this wine. Textural, long & layered. 12.5%
