Awards and Accolades
☆☆☆☆☆ - James Halliday Winery Rating
2016 Vintage: 93 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Exceptional value for money with bing cherry sass, a hint of herb, finely tuned, beguiling tannic detail and a thrust of juicy, crunchy, long-flowing acidity. Burgundian of guile and never slipping into excessive sweetness, this is highly sophisticated for the price."
From the Winery
2017 really was a sensational vintage! Good intermittent rainfall with cool to mild temperatures, and not a day over 40 degrees during the summer months marked 2017 out as a classic cool climate vintage. All varieties came in later than average, ripening at an unhurried pace in these ideal growing conditions, producing wines of incredible structure, detail and length.
Natural winemaking philosophy, while making quality the priority. Minimal intervention in the vineyard and 100% hand-picked. Fermented in 4000L open oak vats and stainless steel fermenters using indigenous yeasts. 20% whole bunch. Delestage by gravity, some light hand plunges and pigeage. 100% malolactic fermentation. Seven months in new and used French oak - 10% new, 90% older. Bottled by gravity, no filtration at bottling.
