Cool vintage for the Huon but slightly warmer than 2020, cloudy summer resulted in a softer fruit profile with soft tannins. No whole bunch used on Huon Fruit. The Derwent received more sun and had better ripening conditions, phenolic ripeness was perfect, low yields resulted in concentrated fruit which was great for 100% whole bunch. I'm happy with this new blend and i think it is very drinkable in its youth.

Hand picked, 50% whole bunch, aged in french oak barrels 228L, 15 percent new wood, one racking, no filtration, Estate bottled, minimal sulfur, vegan. First year making a blend of two sites, both grown by the Lubiana family Biodynamically. The wine is 50% Ruscello vineyard(Stefano Lubiana Estate) and 50% Lucille vineyard(Huon Estate). Blended after 10 months in barrel. I like how the two terroirs work together hence why i did a blend. Th Huon vineyard brings smooth tannins and concentrated fruit where as the Derwent vineyard brings perfume, spice and tight structure. Ruscello vines are roughly 30 years old, grown on sandy loam over gravelly white clay. Lucille vines are between 27-49 years old, grown on sandy loam over clay with cobble stones. Mixture of clones. 4 tonnes per hectare cropped. Enjoy!
