    • Vintage Notes

      Well, you thought 2021 was good but I bet you hadn’t heard about 2022 yet! With most of the country experiencing extreme La Niña conditions, in McLaren Vale we were hit with the lucky stick and enjoyed plenty of soil moistening rain through the winter but no extreme events. Budburst was a breath of new life after a long cool Winter and conditions were ideal up to flowering where things went a bit haywire. Crazy Melbourne type weather blew a lot of the flowers away before they could turn into fruit… but less fruit, more quality and coming off a bumper 2021 vintage it helped balance things out. We had a lovely cool summer, which helped ripening happen nice and slow, just the way we like it. Vintage was well spread out with fine days through most of March allowing us to choose when to pick and preserve stunning, natural acidity.

    • Bouquet

      Remember those heart-shaped peach sour lollies (candy for some of you)? Explosions of sherbet and pineapple really make you feel like you’ve just wandered into Ye Olde Sweet Shoppe in a quaint English seaside town.

    • Palate

      Dehydrated grapefruit rounds and hints of tarragon punctuate this refreshing drop. Freshness and acidity zipping around the palate like a ball in a pinball machine will have your mouth watering for another glass on a glorious sun-kissed day.

    • Vinification

      The fruit was hand picked when sugar and flavours reached optimal levels. The grapes were whole bunch and berry pressed without crushing or destemming. The juice was racked and fermented at temperatures between 13-16°C in stainless steel, to encapsulate fruit freshness. The wine was bottled early in its life to capture the freshness of the varieties.
