A beautiful bouquet of sage and boysenberry capture the fruit expression from this Flinders site. The chalkiness and mineral edge balance the fruit depth and harmonise the velvety tea- like tannins that cover the palate and delight as this wine opens up and evolves.
The 2018 vintage was a big contrast to the 2017 vintage; in fact, it was very similar to 2016. The 2018 vintage began with heavier than normal winter rains and cooler temperatures which delayed budburst but warmer spring weather resulted in perfect conditions for flowering leading to very good fruit set and promising high yields. Grapes matured with optimum sugar, flavour and tannin development resulting in high quality parcels from all sites. It was our third earliest harvest, leading to our shortest ever hang time.
