The First Cut Story
The principle behind our first cut wines revolves around the winemaking term ‘first cut’ in which during the pressing cycle the softer free run juice/wine is separated from the second cut or pressings. This principle flows through to the style of First Cut wines, producing wines with great drinkability well suited to be enjoyed with food or as a drink with friends
