The Optimist

The fruit is sourced from an estate vineyard planted in 1977. It is the coolest sight on the property, facing south east and protected by a scrub.

The vineyard in naturally low yielding - less than 3 t/ acre. Fermented wild, no temp control, in seasoned puncheons, a bit of stirring. Then extended time in bottle prior to release. Chenin Blanc is a classic variety with considerable ageing potential. 200 dozen made.
