Vinification:  The grapes were destemmed and placed in two open fermenters.  Innoculated with selected rhone style yeast and the cap plunged up to four times a day, by hand.  After 10 days the wine was drained and the must basket pressed off to barrel where it underwent a malolactic fermentation which softens the acid.  The wine was then racked and returned to a mix of 50% new and 50% one and two year old French barriques, then left to mature for 12 months.  Blended and bottled in August 2008.

Technical Data: Alc. 13.5 %     pH 3.54           TA 5.3g/L

2007 Vintage: The 2007 vintage was excellent for both reds and whites. There was minimal summer rain and vintage was early with everything ripening at once, giving Robert a headache. With ample Marri blossom there was minimal bird damage.

2007 Red Vintage Rating  9/10
