Technical Data: Alc. 13.3%      pH 3.34                       TA 6.9 g/L

Vintage:The 2019 vintage started about 2 weeks later than the previous few years and was cool,very different to the rest of the country.

Yields we lower.  Lovely white wines have had time to develop delicate flavours while retaining natural acidity. There was no Marri Flowers so netting of all varieties was necessary.

Vintage Rating  9/10
