Winemaker's notes

Vineyard selection is critical with each vintage of Uncut. We select the sites that consistently display the highest quality, concentration and finesse. The biodynamically grown vines age from 20-60 years. Fermentation occurs naturally in 5-8 tonne open fermenters, pressing off skins once the fermentation is completed, which can take up to 10 days. Ageing occurred in 100% French oak barrels ranging in size from puncheons (500L) to barriques (225L) for 16 months maturation. As with all Gemtree reds, minimal racking occurs in this time, so the wine can be aged on its lees, building mouthfeel and texture and allowing sulphur additions to be kept to a minimum to showcase the true character of the wine.
