Vineyard Notes
With winter of 2018 seeing only 77% of the long term average rainfall it was expected that 2019 vintage would see lower yields. However, significant frost events soon after budburst in late September and again in early November caused widespread damage across the region, with many losing more than 50% of their potential crop. The growing season remained extremely dry with a late November hailstorm adding to the list of challenges. After a very warm January, February and March settled towards average temperatures and remained dry. The small crops were nearly all harvested by the end of March, one of the earliest vintages on record. Whilst yields were very low, the quality of 2019 reds is exceptional with super intense colour and flavour being characteristic of the vintage.
Winemaker Notes
The colour is Deep purple centre with a vibrant crimson edge. Lifted satsuma plum and boysenberry aromas with subtle nuances of vanilla. Full bodied, super silky palate with bright purple fruits and a moreish, velvety finish.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect accompaniment to a spicy beef stir-fry, barbequed chorizo sausage or a great parmesan.
Production
Grapes were picked in the cool of the night and crushed immediately into stainless steel fermenters for 7-10 days. After pressing off skins, the wine was then matured in new and older hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling and release.
