Vintage:

2017 was a fantastic year for winemaking in McLaren Vale. We had an extremely wet winter and our vineyards reached full saturation point. Spring brought very consistent fruit set and flowering. The rain continued throughout Summer and mild days with cool nights allowed for a slow ripening season. These conditions resulted in fragrant whites with lower acidity, and elegant reds with very attractive primary fruit flavours and lower alcohols.

Vinification:

Selected batches of Shiraz, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo and Tempranillo were fermented and aged separately in small French and American oak barriques. They were blended to achieve a fruit-filled wine, expressing a nose of Cabernet Sauvignon mid palate of Shiraz with a splash of Nebbiolo, Tempranillo and a finish of silky Grenache.

  • Our debut release of our NOW Chardonnay 2018....PF, Organic, Biodynamic range. Cheers #thewinefront #mclarenvale
  • #biodynamic farming’s most common preparation is 500 (which is cow manure in a cow horn buried over winter). We’re digging them out today in Spring and the rich and lively resulting fertiliser will be mixed into water and sprayed on our vineyards.  It activates and enhances life in our soils.
  • Well this certainly made our weekend! Our Cabernet Sauvignon making James Halliday’s @winecompanion Top 100 Wines of 2018!
