Vinification:

Pressed slightly sweet they were then matured for 9 months in French oak of which 10% was new. Barrels were then hand selected and blended in stainless steel in January for a mid February bottling.


Winery information:

After a dry Spring we had December and February setting records for temperatures so fruit stalled for a little. It became a rush to pull whites in but a slow drawn out process for the reds. Flavours are a little hard to get balanced with the hotter temperatures. The duration of these hot temperatures was somewhat of an anomaly in Margaret River particularly over the Christmas break. Vines tend to shut down at the higher temps which make sugars creep up and acids fall.



Tasting Note:

A seductive bouquet of fresh blueberries with strawberries and cream confection give way to cherry cola and fragrant white pepper notes. A soft and juicy palate abounds with ripe blueberries, Satsuma plums and red berry sweets. Underlying milk chocolate, fresh vanilla pods and sweetened spices make for a memorable marriage of flavours. A velvety structure with lingering flavours makes this wine a crowd pleaser in any situation!
