Production information

Producer: Marchand & Burch

The Marchand and Burch wines are some of the most exciting we have tasted from Australia in a long time. The project is the result of a long standing friendship between Jeff Burch, owner of Howard Park, and Pascal Marchand, who has previously been in charge at Domaine Comte Armand and Domaine de la Vougeraie in Burgundy.

Production note

Each batch is handpicked within the Baume range of 12° to 12.5 °. The individual parcels of grapes are cooled overnight in vented crates, hand sorted then whole bunch pressed to extract only the fine free run juice. After minimal settling, the juices are allowed to ferment naturally in French oak, of which 40% is new. Fermentation temperature is controlled between 18°C to 22 °C and the lees are stirred weekly from later in the fermentation until dry. The separate parcels are matured on lees in barrel for 10 months. A portion of each wine undergoes malolactic fermentation during this period.
