Vintage conditions

The region enjoyed a typical start to a warm and dry growing season with little rainfall in November and December, and average spring temperatures evolving into a near-perfect summer growing cycle. The slightly lower yields have resulted in exceptional fruit ripeness and show an exquisite concentration of aromas and flavours. The overall season offered superb conditions for a range of varieties throughout the vineyards. Across the board, quality was outstanding.

Vinification details

The grapes were crushed, de-stemmed and transferred into tank, and inoculated with yeast before an eight-day fermentation period with regular pump overs to maintain a consistent temperature and to aid colour and tannin extraction from the skins. After pressing, a portion of the wine was matured in French oak barrels. The wine was then blended and clarified before being bottled.

Vintage conditions

Warm, dry weather during the 2018 harvest restricted crop levels and helped to produce exceptional fruit quality with plenty of aromatics and flavour. Lower rain levels during the growing season translated into smaller berries packing their punch, making Trentham’s winemakers very happy!

Vintage conditions

‘Late but great’ sums up the 2017 vintage. Good rain in spring, followed by mild weather and only short heat waves resulted in grapes ripening slowly on the vine. It was certainly an unusually late harvest but the wines are something to be proud of – well balanced fruit, plenty of flavour and distinct varietal aromas.

Vintage conditions

Warm weather in November stimulated budburst two weeks early in the region. The trend continued with the grapes reaching maturity earlier than usual. Consistent mild temperatures and dry conditions resulted in even ripening and high quality fruit for the 2013 vintage.

Vinification details

Post-harvest, the grapes were crushed, transferred into tank and inoculated with yeast. Fermented over an 8 day period with regular pump overs to maintain a consistent temperature and to aid colour and tannin extraction from the skins. Post ferment, the wine was pressed into old French oak and matured for 12 months. The wine was then blended, stabilised and clarified before being bottled.
