Vintage conditions

The 2019 vintage was a very low cropping vintage, the lowest yields for 10 years. A dry winter with some frosts reduced the yield and the hot summer conditions that followed meant there was no disease pressure. As a result, small volumes of very high quality, highly flavoured Shiraz were produced.

Vinification details

Different sections of the vineyard are selected on quality and each section is fermented separately in small open fermenters. The wine is then basket pressed and aged in the finest, predominantly new American oak barrels for 18 months.
