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.
Selected batches of Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon, 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 and a finish of silky Grenache.
