The Past—the dark unfathom’d retrospect!
The teeming gulf—the sleepers and the shadows!
The past—the infinite greatness of the past!
For what is the present after all but a growth out of the past?
(As a projectile form’d, impell’d, passing a certain line, still keeps on,
So the present, utterly form’d, impell’d by the past.)
Walt Whitman, 1819 – 1892. “Passage to India”
This carefully cellared reserve wine is only released a minimum of five years after harvest. It represents a tiny selection from our Home Vineyard, grown and made to showcase our unique site with the benefit of time.
The grapes were sourced from our Home Vineyard which is located on a high-elevation, steep glacial terrace in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. This stunning site has clay and pedogenic lime soil, featuring schist and quartz.
Cellaring will reward collectors over the next 10+ years from vintage.
Bottled on the 11th November 2016, 1512 Bottles were produced.
