Located on the steep north facing slopes of the
Warramate Ranges, the Sexton Vineyard is exposed and demanding. Being on the
higher slopes, topsoil is thin and root systems have established themselves in
shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Bunch yields set naturally
low in this environment, resulting in intensely flavoured fruit with high skin
to juice ratio.

Hand picked and whole bunch pressed without
additions.
Course settled to 500L French puncheons.
Indigenous
fermentation.
Batonnage for the first month, then topped and let rest
(maturing) for a further 8 months on lees.
New and used tight grain French
oak – 20% new, 80% older.
Coarse filtration only. Bottled by
gravity.
