Overview

The 2018 vintage is one of the rare vintages we could harvest two different red varieties on the same day such that we could blend the crushed grapes together and conferment the grapes. This method of winemaking has the benefit of enabling a higher extraction of the various tannins from the skins and making a stronger wine overall. Gundagai is a cool climate growing area not far from the Snowy Mountains, and the Limestone Coast fruit was from Bordertown in SA not far from Coonawarra.

Tasting Notes

Aroma

Chocolate Cherry Eucalypt Mulberry coupled with lifted char coffee French oak.

Palate

Ripe sweet fruit. A fuller style wine with fine grained tannins and a long finish. This concentrated wine has a warm alcohol derived mouth feel along with berry fruit flavours and a soft acidity.
