    • Vineyard Notes Winter of 2017 was typically wet and windy. Flowering in all varieties was approximately ten days earlier than in vintage 2017. Conditions in spring were generally mild, with the usual showery and sunny periods resulting in excellent set across most varieties. Shiraz and Cabernet harvest commenced in the last week of March and into the third week of April. After early leaf removing across the fruit zone to let in the sunshine, and thinning of fruit where necessary, the reds were able to hang well into a rain free April. The slow Autumn ripening allowed Shiraz and Cabernet to develop intense and vibrant fruit flavours with excellent tannin ripeness.
    • Winemaking All the fruit was fermented in open fermenters and were plunged and pumped over daily. Following completion of primary fermentation the wine was run to new, one and two year old barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine underwent malolactic in barrels and after six months the various components were blended and aged in barrels for a further eight months. After assemblage the wine was fined and readied for bottling.
    • Tasting Notes Juicy and concentrated nose packed with plums, cherries and forest fruits. Black cardomom, star anise cedar, cinnamom and nutmeg add extra detail and complexity. Soft and supple entry on the palate with blueberries and raspberries at the forefront. Delicate weight through the middle with some savoury notes and quartz like acidity leads a structure chalky finish.
