Tasting Profile

October 2019

Aromatic notes of just-ripe berries, red apple and spicy orange peel. The long palate combines a soft and slightly creamy texture with lively red berry acidity and flavours of cranberry and strawberry. The finish is savoury and dry with a touch of blood orange pithiness.

Wine Front, November 2019

The style, the price, the quality. It deserves to be more celebrated. A lovely drink. A stylish one. Both squeaky clean and complex. Twigs, strawberries, toffee apples, dry spice notes. Good extension. Makes you want more. And feels elegant all the while. If it was a person, you’d envy it.

The Vintage

Winter provided good average rainfall with approximately 200mm in total falling over June, July and August. Early September welcomed the beginning of budburst, leading to a cool Spring with very little rainfall. Cool weather continued throughout the peak growing months of October, November and December. Spring rainfall was slightly below average but sufficient to ensure the vineyards were in good condition leading into Summer. January was warm, with temperatures exceeding the long-term average, and dry, with almost no rainfall. Veraison commenced mid-January as typical. February was cool providing relief to the vineyards and consolidating veraison across all our varieties. Harvest commenced late February. Warmer weather returned at the beginning of March and conditions remained very dry and moderately warm throughout the harvest period. The viticultural and winemaking teams worked with great tenacity, it was a compact vintage finishing in late March.

The Vineyard

The fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermentation commenced spontaneously with ambient yeasts in old French oak barriques. Once dry, the wine was left sur lie for several months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled without fining and with minimal filtration.
