A warm, dry start to the growing season with September and October rainfall well below average, and maximum temperatures generally above average. This was followed by warm dry conditions through summer with some areas of the south receiving their warmest summer on record. February saw some reprieve from the heat with a touch of rain to freshen up canopies.

Sourced from a selected grower within the Coal River.

50% whole bunch pressed into barrel, 50% destemmed. 14 day ferment time on skins, hand plunged only then pressed to barrel for 10 months in 50% new French oak puncheons prior to bottling.
