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 hand picked when sugar and acid equilibrium was optimum. The grapes were whole bunch and berry pressed without crushing or destemming. The juice was racked from the grape solids on the bottom of the tank, and fermented at temperatures between 13-16°C in stainless steel, to encapsulate fruit freshness. The wine was filtered and bottled early in its life to capture the freshness of the varieties.

  • 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!
