Easy going, light and luscious.A classic bright, lightly perfumed and succulent Margaret River Shiraz, characterised by its medium weight and delicious structure. This wine is an easy drinking, delectable style with light red fruit and a fine tannin profile.
A year of peculiar weather where our commitment to organic viticulture was vital to the successful growth of quality, balanced fruit. A cool and wet spring prompted the need for an intense leaf plucking program to mitigate disease risk. December and January luckily were very warm and dry, then canopy management was a priority throughout February and March to combat unusually warm and moist conditions. A
rainfall event in early February provided a timely drink for the red varietals, followed by warm weather which was ideal for the Chardonnay to achieve ripeness. A second rainfall incident in early March was followed by sunny and breezy conditions to dry off the fruit for healthy ripening. With our judicious canopy management and a crop of naturally resilient grapes, we are pleased to say that fantastic quality fruit was ripened and harvested with little-to-no disease in our vineyards.
This is always spot-on for the style and branding it has championed over the years. Beautifully soft and generous medium-bodied intensity with tonnes of ripe plummy fruit. A slightly chalky fine tannin and perfectly judged oak complements the delicious fruit. V21
Offering a decent balance of fruit to savouriness is part of the appeal of this simple, everyday drink. It’s spicy, laden with black plums and licorice and supple, giving tannins. No need to overthink this. Just pour and enjoy. V21
