Vintage:

2018 Growing season had very good winter rainfall allowing the vineyards to reach saturation point. A very dry spring encouraged healthy foliage growth and controlled the vines vigor well. We experienced one of the driest summers in 30 odd years; this meant a great concentration of flavours and intensity of fruit especially in Shiraz and Grenache. The whites reached fruit ripeness with low acidity therefore producing a very bright and vibrant flavour profile. A warmer than usual autumn (Indian summer) kept disease pressure low and helped natural malolactic fermentation. All and all, a very strong 2018 vintage with fantastic red wines maturing in barrel and vibrant white’s in bottle.

Vinification:

The fruit was harvested at night, when sugar and acid equilibrium was optimum. Whole berries were pressed to capture the beautiful, soft fruit flavours. Post press, the juice was settled, followed by rack-off of the clear free-run. The wine was fermented between 12-16 degrees Celsius in stainless steel vats, without any sulphur additions, until the end of fermentation. Light filtration and early bottling helped enhance this soft, fruit driven wine.
