Background

Parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from selected vineyards were harvest at optimum maturity to maximise varietal fruit flavours and supple tannins. Fruit was fermented and left on skins in static and rotary fermenters for seven days to maximise colour and flavour extraction. After primary fermentation the wines were soft pressed and underwent malolactic fermentation before being aged on French oak for six months before being blended and filtered prior to bottling. The Vintage 2019 growing season was one of the driest on record. Controlled winter watering and careful monitoring of vine stress levels was key to a successful crop this year. Temperatures tended to be cooler in Spring and early Summer which caused a slower start to the season, as temperatures began to rise in late Jan early Feb ripening moved along a little quicker and the team were grateful the vines had sufficient canopies to protect the fruit through to maturity. The reds from this vintage show excellent depth of colour and fabulous tannins, whilst the whites display a rich array of aromatics and bright fresh fruit flavours.
