Tasting Note
The fruit was hand-picked over several small picks then de-stemmed/crushed, chilled into mostly open fermenters. Initial cold soak and then inoculated. The fermenters were pumped over with aeration twice a day. The wine was then pressed to French barriques (25% new) for its Malo-lactic fermentation, allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. The wine was blended, fined with egg whites and bottled after 15 months maturation.

Vintage Notes
The 2018 growing season in Mount Barker began a little early and with strong vigour spurred on by very good soil moisture from winter rains. The last major rain event was in September with 137mm falling setting up our dry grown vineyards for the season. Summer was dry although with moderate day time temperatures and very few days exceeding 30°C. There was very little disease pressure and cool night time temperatures helped maintain natural acidity. Harvest dates were early across most varieties although more pronounced in the reds.
