Vintage: 2018
Cellaring: 5-8 years
Alcohol: 13.9% Alcohol

Winemaking Notes:
Viticultural Notes: The 2018 harvest will be remembered fondly by winemakers in the Yarra Valley. It was a rare season that gave above average yields and excellent quality fruit. Dry sunny conditions with cool overnight temperatures provided good natural acidity and concentrated wines at lower alcohol levels.
