Notes from the boys at CRÉ:
Clone - Geisenheim 198 Grown by us in Dixons Creek, Yarra Valley on a mixture of heavy clay and clay loam. Gentle north facing slope. 2022 was a difficult growing season with a lot of water stress on this block; flooded for a prolonged period then extreme heat. This resluted in a great balance in ripening Handpicked. Pressed straight to barrel for a wild ferment. 6 months on ferment lees. 30ppm SO2 addition at bottling. Lean, bright and textural. A perfect balance between fruit, acid and texture.
