VINTAGE 2017

Our philosophy is to craft single vineyard wines of great purity and character, reflective of our site and the season in which it was grown. It’s the attention and care in the vineyard that is most critical to allowing this expression.

The 2017 vintage is a classic in the making. A mild but windy spring led into a cool summer and extended autumn. The wines are classically proportioned and destined for a long life.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked, with each parcel handled separately in the winery. Hand sorted and carefully destemmed (Small % whole bunches – less than 5%). Each parcel went into traditional oak open fermenters. The fermentation was hand plunged up to three times per day, the temperature of the fermentation peaked at 32ºC and the wine stayed on skins for 13 – 15 days, after which the wine was pressed into tight grain French oak puncheons (500L) for malolactic fermentation and maturation (11 months in oak. 20% new). The wine was bottled in February 2018. No fining, light filtration. 

TASTING NOTE

Deep crimson, the bouquet opens with pure red fruits, berry coulis characters and a fragrant floral lift. The palate is finely structured, with the finest of tannins running through and a line of cherry, wild strawberry and a host of tightly packed red berry fruits. Polished and poised, the glossy sheen of subtle French oak is beautifully integrated in the background. Super silky, with incredible length and purity, we expect the best from this wine in 6-8 years, but it will carry for many years after that.

WINEMAKING

Handpicked, with each parcel handled separately in the winery (a total of 18 individual batches). Hand sorted and carefully destemmed (no whole bunches), each parcel went into traditional open fermenters. The wine underwent three days of cold soaking to ensure even and thorough extraction. Batches were on skins for 7-10 days, after which time they were transferred into French oak (500L puncheons) for 10 months and prepared for bottling in late December 2017. 

 

TASTING NOTE

Characteristic perfumed, fragrant aromas highlighted by sour cherry and red berry fruits, complemented by a touch of spice and underlying French oak. The long, silky palate has a lovely elegance and velvety texture and a finely poised finish.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked and gently de-stemmed into traditional oak open fermenters. A small portion of whole bunches (10%). After 10-14 days on skins, the wine was pressed into tight grain 500L French oak puncheons for malolactic fermentation and maturation. The wine remained in oak for 11 months and was racked once during maturation.

 

TASTING NOTE

A perfumed and spicy Syrah, medium-bodied in style.  The palate is concentrated and silky, with finely structured tannins, bright fruit characters, wonderful elegance and depth.  Stored carefully, this wine will age gracefully for ten years.
