Background

The soils of Coonawarra consist of thin dark brown to dark grey clays interspersed with broken limestone fragments. The shallow soil overlies soft crumbly limestone at depths of as little as 10cm so that the vines effectively grow in limestone rock. The shallow soils restrict vigour & this, coupled with rigorous canopy management, allows us to control berry size and bunch numbers & thus eventual crop load. This control of crop level and berry size gives our winemakers the best possible starting material with which to create premium red wines. Coonawarra experienced similar weather conditions to Wrattonbully which led to a long slow ripening season. As at Wrattonbully these conditions led to the best chemical balance in the grapes for many years and resulted in fresh sweet lifted flavours in the fruit. Berry and bunch sizes were very small and have led to quite intense flavours in the wines. Harvest commenced with Merlot in early April and the last of our Cabernet was picked in mid-April. The 2015 vintage at Coonawarra continues a run of exceptional vintages.
