This 30th Vintage Limited Edition Baco Noir comes from our oldest vineyards, from vines we shovel-planted as teens in 1984 in crooked rows that roll with our land. We call this wine Bin 106 in homage to the vineyard where these grapes were grown.
• Soils are primarily lacustrine silty clay. • A single vineyard wine from an exceptional block that was shovel planted by the Speck Bros in 1984 and is predominantly south facing. • Sustainably grown under SWO. • Vineyards are not a monoculture, wildlife corridors are preserved. • Yields of 3.5 tonnes per acre. • All grapes gently moved by gravity. • Gently destemmed, mechanically sorted (optically as needed). • Cap gently managed through pulse-air during fermentation to extract natural rich fruit, intensity of colour and flavour. • All juice is separated from the skins with no press wine added back. • Aged in a combination of new and 1-year-old American barriques for 12 months. Through a three tier selection process, only the top performing barrels were selected, resulting in a 50% new oak allocation.
