The Field is a unique blend of all six grape varieties in our Hard Hill Road Vineyard; a field blend in the truest sense of the word.
The total area planted for that variety determines the proportion of each variety in the fermenter: Shiraz 52%, Riesling 22%, Petite Sirah 9%, Nebbiolo 10%, Tannat 5% and Viognier 2%.
Each variety was separately harvested as it reached its optimum maturity and added to the single open-topped ‘Field’ fermenter, creating a slow, continuous fermentation lasting the full two-month vintage.
Aromatic and vibrant, a combination of blackberry, blueberry and floral flavours, medium body, great depth and a long velvety finish.
An alluring wine with a uniquely varied set of flavours and a subtle complex structure that will surprise and impress.
