Awards and Reviews
” You have to check out this relatively small production malbec. Loaded with brooding black fruits displaying a subtle raspberry confection lift. It’s smooth, seamless and just so deliciously cuddly on the palate. Brilliant, bright reddy in colour is the first indication of the energy here. Slightly chewy tannins and support. 95/100″

New Release October 2018

Vinification: The grapes were picked in the cool of the morning, destemmed and placed in open fermenters.  Innoculated with a neutral yeast and the cap plunged up to four times a day, by hand.  After 10 days the wine was kept on extended skins for a further ten days.  Then the wine was drained and the must basket pressed off to tank where it underwent a malolactic fermentation which softens the acid.  The wine was then racked to a mix of one and two year old French barriques, then left to mature for 12 months. Blended and put to bottle in July 2018.

Technical Data: Alc. 13.9%      pH 3.7        TA 6.1 g/l

2017 Vintage: The spring of 2016 was much cooler and wetter and this combined with the cooler conditions in early 2017 have seen Vintage 2017 be a more traditional Margaret River vintage. The yields for most white varieties were strong and harvest began later in February continuing well into March capturing the bright, fragrant aromas. The slower ripening has resulted in superb whites with excellent flavour profiles.

Vintage Rating  8/10
