WINEMAKER NOTES

Pale salmon colour with rose hues. Fresh aromas red berry, cranberry, red currant are complimented by savoury mineral characters of flinty and struck match. Red berry fruit flavours carry onto the palate and combine with dry, savoury, soft chalky texture.

VINEYARD

Shiraz, grenache, nero d'avola and mourvèdre from our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Deep, rich, decomposed greenstone rock and limestone with soil depths up to 2m allow roots to reach deep, while relatively low fertility controls vigour and yield. 

VINTAGE

After the cooler conditions of the 2017 season, 2018 saw the return of the warm dry conditions that have been more typical in recent years. Vintage started in early February and went through to mid-March.

WINEMAKING

Grapes hand picked and gently whole bunch pressed, then the juice was fermented in seasoned French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The wine remained on yeast lees in barrel and tank with regular stirring for three months prior to bottling. The final blend comprises shiraz 50%, Nero d’Avola 22%, Grenache 15% and Mourvèdre 13%.
