SOURCED FROM PFIEFFER VINEYARD
SEPPELTSFIELD, BAROSSA VALLEY

We’ve always thought of the La Petite Vanguard as being our example of a Bistro style wine – the experimental sibling to Vanguardist. Youthful & vibrant, with great drinkability, enhanced by layers of complexity from thoughtful use of solids, skin contact, oak and other vessels.


VINEYARD AND WINERY
The summer of 2021 was cooler & kinder than the past few years. Rainfall came at very timely moments. This is an important little vineyard for us, surrounding our winery in Seppeltsfield. It’s organically farmed - interplanted field blend bush vines of approximately 50% Grenache, 30% Shiraz, 20% Mourvèdre. We yielded around 18HL/Ha, just a little below the long-term average.

Harvested by hand on the 20th February. The wine saw 40% whole bunch, with a maceration of 3 weeks on skins and stems. Sent to mature barriques for 6 months prior to blending & bottling without fining or filtration.
