TASTING NOTES

From mature vines at our vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley, this is a fine example of Australia’s most famous wine style: full-bodied with rich, ripe fruit, savoury oak and soft tannin.

 

SEASON

It was a warm season and harvest was very early, the earliest on record in some vineyards. Most vineyards saw a return to average or slightly above-average yields and fruit quality was outstanding. Rainfall was below average and our vines benefitted from the new irrigation system at our Watunga Road Vineyard.

WINEMAKING 

The fruit was hand harvested in early March in warm, dry weather. It was destemmed and fermented in open and static fermenters with pump over and hand plunging. The wine was matured for 18 months in a mix of old and new French oak.
