Rare and refined, this Old Vine Trebbiano is from our historic Golden Mile Bench Estate vineyard, first planted in 1968 with vines brought directly from northern Italy. The grapes for this vintage were handpicked, hand sorted, destemmed and left whole to be gently pressed. The resulting juice was cold settled for five days in stainless steel at 2°C. A slow, cool fermentation at 12°C for 32 days in stainless steel helped bring out the gorgeous aromatics and flavours. The wine was further aged for 4 months on fine lees adding nice weight and texture.
