The season started with consistent spring rainfall that built a solid foundation with strong, healthy canopies and bountiful bunch numbers. Mild conditions continued through to summer with few days reaching over 25C. The start of Autumn provided glorious sunshine days and cool oceanic evenings hailing the start of veraison. The vacant heat returned shortly thereafter to kickstart what would be a long and late vintage. The fruit was in absolutely no rush to be picked and showed its relaxed appreciation through integrated and balanced phenolic profiles.

Fruit was sourced from 20-year-old vines on the East Coast of Tasmania.

The fruit was crushed and pressed to tank. Cold settled. Racked off heavy lees then warmed and inoculated (PDM yeast strain). Fermentation took place over 18 days with 3 months on fine lees in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling.
