This wine is fermented naturally in an open barrel, with 1/3 of the grapes left as whole bunches. After fermentation starts (3 - 4 days), it is hand pigeage daily for about three weeks before pressing. Finally its moved into French oak and aged for eight months before bottling. The wine is unfiltered with a small amount of fine lees left to protect the wine in bottle.

This beauty comes from North vineyard, situated at the bottom of Mount Macedon at 540m above sea level.
The vineyard is chemical free and is completely managed by hand (Etienne Mangier’s hands).

A cloudy, deep purple colour.
Nose has an intense grape perfume with touch of oak spices.
A bomb of a mouthfeel, gentle tanin, natural acidity, finishing with a nice dryness.
