SERVING TEMPERATURE | 13 - 18°

TASTING NOTES

It has aromas of cherry and spicy oak, bright fruit flavours, silky tannin and a long finish.

VINTAGE

Vintage 2016 was marked by warm and dry conditions and the Yarra Valley harvest was one of the earliest on record. It arrived in a hurry too, catching some vignerons by surprise; many were picking in early February, about a month earlier than the long-term average. Yields were low and the resulting wines have excellent fruit intensity.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was handpicked in early February. Bunches were destemmed and fermented in open fermenters with hand plunging. The wine was matured for 10 months in a mix of old and new French oak barrels.
