A mild spring and warm start to 2017 gave the vineyards a good start and meant that careful management in the vineyard was needed for shoots & canopies. Changeable weather over the harvesting window gave us a challenge but with judicious picking decisions the crops came in clean and well balanced.
Careful fruit selection combined with quality vineyards – typified by free draining, infertile, gravelly soils and low yields – allowed us to harvest bunches exhibiting purity, ripeness, and fine tannin.
This classic blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2017 vintage displays aromas of red fruits, cedar and dried herbs with flavours of plum and blackcurrant. The smooth finish on the palate is supported by supple, approachable tannins.
