Reviews

“Sweetly fruited and attractively fragrant, the bouquet shows red/black cherry, cranberry, floral and subtle spice aromas, leading to a silky palate that is nicely rounded and juicy. The wine offers pristine fruit flavours together with spicy/savoury nuances, finishing long and smooth. At its best: now to 2020."
4 stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2018

Winemaking notes

The fruit for this wine was sourced mainly from our newest vineyard (10 years old) with a small contribution from the oldest vines in our home block (20 years). A range of clones (114, 666 and 667) were harvested on 1st and 5th April 2017 at 22.7 Brix.
In the winery, fruit was destemmed only and spent 15 days fermenting on skins prior to pressing. Gentle hand plunging and a cool ferment extracted fine tannins and ripe primary fruit flavours. Oak influence was added by way of a French oak fan in the tank. The wine was fined with a yeast-based product and bottled on 9 Feb 2018.
