How's it taste?

Red cherry, red currants and a spicy/savoury clove edge lifts from the glass while more delicate aromas of violets, Mulberries and blackcurrant notes add layers of complexity. Delicate red berry and redcurrant fruits fill the palate while ripe, elegant, well integrated tannins add structure. The red cherry and red currant flavours linger endlessly, giving great length and seamless purity.

How was it made?

The fruit was gently machine harvested and processed into red fermenters where they are tenderly pumped over three times a day during fermentation to maximize colour extraction. Gentle handling of the fruit and wine ensures varietal character and freshness is maintained.
The season for V18 was all we could have hoped for growing premium fruit in Margaret River.
Cool nights throughout and mild daytime conditions led to even fruit ripening with great flavour intensity. The absence of any heatwave events or days above 38 degrees allowed for natural acid retention and produced fruit with vibrancy. Some rainfall in the new year freshened the vines at an ideal time and the disease pressure throughout was minimal. This was the sort of season you hope for when growing wine-grapes anywhere in the world.
