Vintage 

The season began beautifully, coming through a cool, wet winter into a warm spring. The weather rallied with a perfect Margaret River summer. Rainfall in March freshened the grapes beautifully and kicked them on to achieve full ripeness, ideal balance and perfumed red wines.

Winemaking

Fruit was picked in the middle of the night to ensure that it stayed cool and pristine prior to fermentation. Following five days of cold soaking, the wine was allowed to ferment for eight days.
