Grapes are from my vineyard in Metcalfe. 30% whole bunch, the rest is de stems, fermenting in small open fermenter and wines barrels (I remove the head and put the barrels standing up). Left on skin for a month, pressed and barrel down in old French oak for a 18 months. Minimal Sulfur before bottling. Only one barrel made 
Fresh tobacco and black cherry on the nose
Fresh but long palate.                                                                                                               - North Wine
