Description

The fruit was hand-picked in the cool of the morning and transported directly to the winery. Bunches were chilled, whole bunch pressed with a portion of the free-run transferred straight to barrel, and one batch settled overnight then racked to barrel. Barrel stirring throughout fermentation and into maturation ensured lees complexity developed and integrated seamlessly with new and old oak. Barrel selection provided the perfect balance between fruit power, fermentation complexity and oak impact.

Vintage 2020 was a warm and dry vintage, however, a wetter than average winter set us up well for this. The growing season started off with a warm spring followed by a hot summer, we did get one significant rain event in late February, which slowed down the reds and allowed for ripening of tannin and flavour to catch up with sugars. The warm and dry conditions reduced disease pressure, and we had ample marri blossom around the district, so we didn’t have the bird pressure of 2019. Yields were low across the board, but on the upside, this resulted in excellent quality with concentration of flavour across all varieties.
