SKU: VASFHECHA22
Our most unique small vineyard sections where the Gingin clone on specific aspect and soil interplay in such a way to ignite very special varietal and wild yeast influence. A similar harvest time to the reasonably late 2021 vintage due to cool spring conditions, fortuitously a warm January saw ripening accelerate with ideal sugar and flavour ripeness. With high natural acidity, natural MLF was allowed to complete. Delicate, tightly held flavours has resulted in beautiful restraint and balance. Hand-harvested, whole-bunches were pressed and transferred direct to barrel as unclarified juice. Only natural yeasts from the vineyard fermented the wine which was nurtured in our cellar for 15 months, 8 of which were in oak with some lees stirring, before 7 months in tank on full lees. 100% Gingin clone and true to Heytesbury perfume and structure. A savoury, delicate and beautifully structured, complex wine in a delayed, yet moderately warm harvest year.
