Description

Le Maitre comes from Gibbston Valley’s™ original Home Block vineyard at the western entry to Gibbston. The vineyard is not irrigated, and has BioGro Organic certification. Soil is silty loam over a mix of schist and gravel. The vines have a natural balance born from age and a deep root profile. The subregional influence of Gibbston gives the wine transparency and elegance.

Following an excellent growing season, the fruit was picked immediately following a cool snap mid April, and fermented in a single open top fermenter. After 26 days on skins, the wine was pressed, then filled to 7 barrels total (28% new). The wine is a limited production from a small number of vines.
