WHY F.U. IS UNIQUE
Our wines are sourced from a single old vineyard from what we consider to be one of the finest vineyards in South Australia.
Being able to select from the top vines in South Australia gives us the benefit of perfectly, ripened fruit. The smooth taste of each vintage comes from selecting specific fruit parcels that allow us to define the wine as much in the vineyard as the winery.
These grapes are brought into the winery, and crushed into old vats where the fermentation is initiated by "wild" yeasts found on the grape skins. Careful extraction and short post fermentation maceration is followed by soft pressing.
The wine is transferred into brand new oak barrels where the malolactic fermentation is completed before racking and maturation for 36 months in barrels. A careful assemblage and barrel selection is followed by minimal filtration and bottling.
