Warm appeal of ripe blackberry, cherry and fruitcake aromas. Those same flavours step confidently onto the palate; black cherry, fruitcake and blackberry – with a light brush of herbs and trace of bonfire smoke too. Gentle and easy textured, its light to medium body makes for effortless enjoyment. Supple and succulent to the end.

Vineyard / Terroir / Climate “Late, slow, and steady” best describes the 2021 vintage. Because the previous winter was cold and wet, there was good dormancy and healthy dam levels before the growing season. The cool weather persisted into spring, causing delayed but relatively even bud break, flowering, and fruit set. The cool summer temperatures slowed the ripening process, causing harvest to begin about two weeks later than usual. February, which is typically hot, was unusually cool, allowing for the gradual ripening of fruit with good flavours and acidity. An exceptional vintage that promises to produce exceptional wines.
