Angove have identified key vineyard sites in McLaren Vale. By combining fruit from the cool
Willunga hills in the south with the sandy loams of Blewitt Springs and the steep slopes of the Clarendon
sub regions so they can create wines with complexity and distinctive regional expression and character.
The grapes were crushed into 70 year old, 4 tonne concrete open fermenters and left to start fermenting using
the natural yeast on the grapes and in our 100 year old winery. Careful plunging and pumping over provided
exceptional colour and flavour extraction. The wine is left on skins for a further week after fermentation is complete to build depth and complexity. Maturation occurs on American and French
oak for around 9 months prior to bottling on the family owned estate.
