Plum, earthy undertones, some sweet spice and fine tannins offer great support giving the wine a long, fruit-driven length.
2017 started well with good flowering giving us hope of a good cropping year after the small 2016 vintage. It ended slowly and as with any vintage changing many times along the way. March arrived, as did the rain, causing everyone concern - thankfully we weren't hit as heavily as some other areas. The weather cooled heading into April but the sun came out and slowly reds ripened. 2017 was a long and interesting vintage, with the fruit staying on vines many weeks later than previous years creating great flavour development.
