    Vintage

    The 2014 growing season in the south west of Western Australia was favourable for the production of great wine. After a winter of sufficient rain, the spring to autumn period was continuously warm to hot, dry and characterised by less than average summer precipitation or humidity. An added bonus to the benign harvest conditions was the explosion of native blossom which sated the otherwise grape-loving, resident bird populations. The resulting red wines show an abundant and rich array of varietal expressions which are layered and pure.
     

    Winemaking

    Once harvested, the grapes were then fermented in stainless steel tanks with traditional pump-overs carried out each day to aid fruit and tannin development. The parcels of fruit were then pressed to French and American oak barriques for 12 months maturation to encourage wine development and structural complexity. The use of French oak allowed for the integration of dusty savoury tannins, and the American oak introduced rich, toasted vanillin flavours.
