The wine quality was set up by having a good wet season in 2017 which meant healthy vines. These very good winter rains created ideal conditions for initial canopy growth and the dry spring kept the vigour in check and early season disease at bay. Our summer and early autumn were unusually dry, in fact here was as little as 10mm of rain from 1st of January through to picking in the middle of March. Favourable summer ripening weather with daytime temperatures in the high twenties, with cool nights, led to fruit in great condition at picking. Early indications suggest the wines are very good from this vintage across the board.
Dark pink in colour there is a slight smokiness and enticing hints of boozy strawberry jam. On the palate it is all about a delicious high tea. Gently spiced aromatic Orange Pekoe tea, white bread (crusts off) sandwiches and a selection of gorgeous fresh berry tarts.
