Fruit was harvested from our old vines in our exceptional riverside vineyards during April 2018. The vineyard is situated on the banks of the Murray River, and is of sandy soils, with excellent draining providing ideal conditions for growing high quality fruit. 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.
Wine Harvest Notes
I have been making wine with McPherson Wines for 15 years now, and just when you think you have it sorted, bam another challenge comes your way. Vintage 2020 in itself was manageable and promising, yields were low therefore overall tonnages down. Given yields were low, quality is great - the intensity of both colour and flavour in the reds and whites is excellent - there will certainly be some cracking reds from 2020. We were almost through the harvest when the COVID restrictions hit - which provided another level of complexity. However it all worked out in the end, it usually does, and I hope that everyone enjoys our 2020 wines.
Perfect with red meats and spicy Asian dishes, try this wine with a barbequed steak, or slow cooked, rich beef ribs.
