Viticulturist Notes
Fruit was harvested from 16 year old vines in an exceptional vineyard site from our GV vineyard on 22nd March 2018. The vineyard is situated on the banks of the Goulburn River, and is of sandy soils, with excellent draining providing ideal conditions for growing high quality fruit. Tonnages were kept low, (approximately 1.5 tonnes/acre) to allow for maximum quality and flavour. The must was fermented with wild yeast in open pot fermenters and hand plunged every eight hours for the ferment’s duration. Separate parcels of the wine spent between 6 and 12 months in French oak barriques, after which the final blending of select parcels took place. The resulting wine exhibits lovely red fruit characters, with hints of blackcurrant and chocolate. The palate has exceptional length of flavour with good tannins which will allow the wine to cellar for the next 10-15 years.
Wine Harvest Notes
Another season by the joys and challenges that Mother Nature continually throws our way! 2018 is a very good year for quality, the season was warm and dry and we were kept on our toes as once we started picking everything ripened up pretty quickly. Intense flavours came in late this year and we held off picking to allow maximum flavour. The whites are all fruit forward, with lovely fresh acidity whilst the reds have excellent colour and flavour to match. This vintage is a beauty and subsequently we have made some cracking wines in 2018.
Food Recommendations
A lovely accompaniment to French cheese or charcuterie, this is also a perfect wine for big flavoured meals like roast meats and hearty pasta. The trick is to balance the beautiful intense flavours with rich, flavoursome dishes that will hold their own with this gorgeous wine.
