Overview

The climate is hot with high evaporation rates and generally low rainfall, making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural and winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths. Long sunshine hours ensure fruit ripens fully and low relative humidity results in little incidence of disease.

The Graciano was machine harvested and selected from a trial vineyard in the Murray Darling of New South Wales, with the Tempranillo sourced from the Riverina. Both parcels were processed at the Buronga Hill Premium Winery of Australian Vintage.

The fruit was crushed, de-stemmed and fermented in an oak cask for 14 days with minimal plunging for 14 days before being pressed off. Post-fermentation, the wine then underwent malolactic fermentation in 3yr old French oak before it was transported to the Hunter.
