Across the Limestone Coast and South Australia, the 2019- 2020 season got off to a good start with below average but sufficient rainfall to provide good soil moisture levels. The season was cool and windy which impacted early vine growth, and resulted in smaller than average crops in most vineyards. Heat spikes around Christmas were isolated and the lead up to harvest was cool allowing for ideal, slow flavour development and very little disease pressure. The small quantities of high-quality fruit produced rich wines with great depth and complexity.
The fermentation was cool, and the fruit was on skins for 8-10 days to ensure the fruit vibrancy was enhanced. Careful use of selected yeast and oak for background characters add interest to this wine without deflecting interest from the red fruit aromas and flavours.
Alc/Vol: 14.5%, pH:3.72, Acidity: 5.63.
