Sourced from handpicked fruit from the Coldstream Hills Estate Blocks, the fruit was fermented traditionally in small three tonne open fermenters. Whole bunches were used in the fermenters to add further complexity and structure. A higher percentage of new French oak, longer time in barrel and selecting the best grapes places the emphasis on structure. The wine, whilst approachable at a relatively young age, has the ability to mature for at least ten years.Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday and has since grown to become one of Australia's leading and most awarded small wineries.
