“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time.” – Leo Tolstoy, War and Peace.
A project and desire to push our winemaking starting in 2014, a project that has pushed us in many ways, and a project that has taught us with patience and time things will come together.
The Limited Cuvée wines are exceptional small parcels released only on selected vintages.
This desire and passion also lead to the decision in 2016 to set aside a selected parcel of Pristine Roussanne free run juice and produce an aromatic, structured elegant white wine to sit above the rest.
The selected parcel sourced from the quarter hectare vineyard in the Greenock sub region of the Barossa Valley that all their previous Roussanne wines have hailed from, with this parcel off the oldest plantings.
Hand-picked, left to chill overnight in the cool room and then destemmed Michael then puts the free run juice to a new French Oak puncheon to naturally ferment, and Malo left to Elevage with gentle continuous battonage.
Orange oil, pears, pastry cream and honey blossom, medium to full bodied and textured.
50 dozen of each wine available. $92 per bottle $496 per six pack
All wines have been, handmade, hand bottled, hand corked, hand labelled, hand foiled, hand stamped, hand wrapped, and hand packed by Michael & Susan Papps and their children Peyton and Campbell.
