WINEMAKING NOTES

Our wines are handcrafted with minimal intervention as to truly reflect the purist expression of vineyard, vintage and variety. From the vineyard to the bottle, only the gentlest techniques are utilised; harvest by hand, whole berry de-stemming, open-vat temperature controlled fermentation, gentle basket-pressing and no finning or filtration prior to bottling.

VINTAGE NOTES

The growing season started off well, with Winter 2017 rainfall around 10% higher than average. However, a low spring rainfall resulted in drier soils that combined with warmer than average October/November, meant the vine canopies grew quickly. March and early April saw average temperatures, without extremes, which was perfect for finishing off vintage. Overall 2018 is a high-quality vintage with good yields and reds showing upstanding colour and flavour.

TASTING NOTES

The aroma shows hints of cherry, black pepper, violets and earthy notes. The smooth juicy palate is a mix of sweet spice and moorish plum fruit flavours with fine tannins and balanced natural acidity that invite you back for another taste.
