Tasting Notes

PALATE Soft and light with crunchy fresh acid. Plum and blueberry flavours linger with a light tannin feel finishing dry yet refreshing.
Winemaker Notes
WINEMAKER'S NOTES The individual batches were sent whole berry separately into stainless steel Rotating fermentation vessels. 100% wild yeast was allowed to ferment all of our red batches. They take a few days to start giving a gentle soak before fermentation kicks off and then pressed when fermentation complete. Open top and use of aeration during fermentation helps to promote a clean fruit perfume, soften the tannins and bring so much life to the wine. They were then matured in barriques for 12 months before coming out and being blended with a small amount of Pinot Noir adding to the vibrance of the perfume.

Vintage Notes

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.

    Ray Jordan's Top 100 Reds

    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

    Halliday Wine Companion 2024 - Jane Faulkner

    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
