Tasting Notes: Bright and lively aromas of raspberry, red cherry and cinnamon spices. On the palate there is a wash of red berry fruits with plenty of impact that give length and is supported by fresh spices and gentle tannins.
Winemaking Notes: Harvest: Hand-picked: 7th, 9th & 12th of March
Vinification & Elevage: Fruit was sourced from sourced from the northern part of the Yarra Valley of Dixons Creek and the Tarrawarra areas. Fermented in static closed top fermenters with daily pump overs during ferment as required, developing tannin structure, colour and flavour. Presssed and matured in a mixture of French oak (10% new) and stainless steel. The oak helps lift spice, structure and mid palate, while the stainless steel maturation retains brightness and freshness in the finished wine. Matured for 10 months prior to final blending.
Viticultural Notes: Our winemaking philosophy is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard and allow the wines to express the indiviuality of the vineyard and each growing seaon. The grapes for this wine were handpicked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions.
Optimal conditions for flowering and fruitset in the vineyards gave well balanced yield with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest. A dry January and February followed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage, though attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balanced fruit with concentration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity.
