2020 was a warm vintage with low yields resulting in good quality. Spring development was early followed by a warm start to summer and continuing into fine sunny, dry conditions throughout the summer months. This, combined with lower yields, brought an early start to harvest. Happily, we experienced minimal bird pressure due to the timely arrival of Marri Blossom and there was no disease pressure. Following the completion of white harvest, a rainfall event in late February provided a timely drink for the reds. Bird pressure increased resulting in the netting of our red varietals. The faster ripening period combined with lower yields led to incredible concentration in our red varietals, with substantial tannins and rich fruit flavour.
..this is a mighty sophisticated Chardonnay that would hold its own confidently against premier cru Burgundian royalty. v19
Each year this wine presents an amalgam of creamy, chewy phenolics, ripe yet nervy fruit and exotic spice.. Gorgeous stuff. v19
