in the vineyard : Vine age: 18 years
Density: 2 800 vines per hectareYield: 8,8 tons per hectare
Soil: Well-drained and lightly-structured Clovelly and Avalon
100% Dry-land management. Vines are planted 1.4 m apart to avoid density as Semillon can be vigorous in growth. Intensive leaf and shoot management in October allows for even ripeness and enables shade for fruit concentration development. This is one of GlenWood’s award winning vineyards.

about the harvest: Grapes were picked at 22.2° B

Yield: 8.8 tons per hectare

in the cellar : Grapes were given eight hours of skin contact before pressing to 1.4 bars of pressure. The juice was left to settle for two days before racking to barrel. Using only wild yeast, fermentation occurred over a two month period.

The wine spent 15 months on the lees. Only new, small French oak barrels were used.

Production: 1 200 bottles.
