Vintage conditions

The warm, dry weather conditions of the 2019 harvest lowered the crop levels and produced smaller berries but helped to produce some exceptional quality. The resulting wines have plenty of aromatics and intensity, packing their punch with amazing concentration of flavour, ripeness and length, making the winemakers very happy!

Vinification details

Harvested throughout the night and early morning, the grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into the fermentation tank. The fruit was fermented on skins for ten days using carefully-selected yeast strains before pressing. After pressing, the wine was left to mature in both new and seasoned French and American puncheon barrels for 12 months. The wine was then blended and bottled in August 2020.

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, intense berries.

Vinification details

The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 days before pressing. After pressing, the wine was matured in a combination of new and aged French and American oak barrels.

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.

Vinification details

Once harvested, the grapes were de-stemmed and pumped into the fermentation vessel. The fruit was fermented on skins for 7 days before pressing. After pressing, the wine was matured in a combination of new and aged French and American oak barrels.

This savoury black cherry and plum-flavoured wine could carry a $30 price tag and still attract pernickety purchasers.

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.
