James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "From Central Victoria, includes 5% mourvedre, static fermenters, pumped over every 8 hours, separate parcels spent 6-12 months on French oak (staves) before blending. Generous, honest, well balanced and with real interest generated by the bandwidth of its fruit flavours."
From the Winery
Fruit for the La Vue was harvested from select vineyard sites within Central Victoria during March/April 2014. The must was fermented in static red fermenters and pumped over every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Once the ferment was dry, the resulting wine was pressed off the skins and allowed to settle before allowing a natural secondary fermentation to commence. Separate parcels of the wine spent between 6 and 12 months on French oak, after which the final blending of select parcels took place. The resulting wine is ripe, complex and wonderfully rich and brooding. This is in part due to the distinct Shiraz parcels, but also as a result of the Mourvedre which imparts a fruit driven yet earthy character to the wine.
The growing season in 2014 presented some challenges including frost in late 2013 and extreme heat in early 2014. Once harvesting began in late January we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fruit and the resulting wines. Yields were down but quality was up this year. Whites have good varietal character, with great flavour, whilst the reds have beautiful colour and flavour intensity.
