2017 Mataro 750mL

The cuttings for this vineyard were sourced from very old vines that were growing near Marananga and planted in 2000 as un-trellised bush vines.

The vines proved far too vigorous so have been trained onto a double cordon in order to take up some of their energy, but even with minimal water and fertiliser they are prolific grape producers. It has taken a number of years to perfect bunch pruning and trellising methods of the block to produce a wine that meets the standard for a Greenock Creek bottling.

The grapes are fermented in open fermenters, pumped over, chilled and then basket pressed. The wine is racked into barrels to undergo natural malolactic fermentation, keeping the free run and pressings separate to be blended back together prior to bottling.

The wine is matured in seasoned French hogsheads with a small percentage going into new oak. It is then aged for approximately 26 months, and is usually not filtered or fined prior to bottling.
