The Wine:
Sourced from Willunga 100's own estate vineyard 'Blind Spot' in the sub-region of Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. The three selected parcels were hand harvested and vinified separately. The wines were fermented in stainless steel open fermenters. Two parcels were fermented with 20% whole bunch (equalling approx. 14% whole bunch across the wine). 10 days on skins, gently basket pressed. 60% of the wine was transferred to aged French oak puncheons post primary fermentation to undergo malolactic fermentation, the balance remained in stainless steel. The wine remained on fluffy lees for 10 months before being racked prior to bottling. No fining, vegan friendly.

A bright aromatic wine showing red cherry fruit, earthy spice and liquorice notes. The palate is generous and laden with red fruits; complemented with cardamom spice and woody herbs, over a supportive frame of fine grained tannins.
