2017 Vintage 

The 2017 vintage on the Mornington Peninsula is a classic in the making.

A mild but windy spring led into a cool summer and extended autumn. Yields were low, and small bunches and berries resulted in exceptionally complex and detailed fruit flavours. 

The wines are classically proportioned with great purity and intensity.

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.
