VINTAGE REPORT

The 2018 Vintage was preceded by a cooler, dry spring and summer leading into the growing season and a warm ripening period. This resulted in average crops of excellent quality punctuated by smaller than average berry size. The resultant wines are intense in flavour and tannin structure with a dense core of dark, black fruit. The ability of these wines to age will be immense.

WINEMAKING

The Shiraz was de-stemmed into traditional waxed open concrete fermenters with heading down boards to aid a gentle tannin extraction. Once pressed off skins post fermentation, the wine was matured in tight grain French and American Oak barrels for 12-15 months.
