We are looking to soften and integrate the strong natural tannins of this Mudgee fruit without an overt oak influence. This is a wine that is built for cellaring and will take up to ten years to really reach its peak.
The Lowe ‘Block 8’ vineyard was planted in 1995 and is organic, dry grown and untrellised. Once in the winery, the grapes were fermented with natural yeast from the (reserve) Block 5 vineyard in open, wax lined concrete fermenters. The wine was then matured for two years in older, large American oak cases.
