Vintage Comment: The 2019/20 growing season provided challenges throughout, displaying compression of season, extremes of temperature and then a global pandemic at the time of harvest! In spite of this quality of fruit was excellent and as an initial indicator as to why, the general “pattern” of the season’s weather can be observed as following a normal trend for Coonawarra. In spite of some variability in bunch numbers and fruit weight, the season overall resulted in good vine balance and the fruit looked fantastic throughout. This observation is already being reflected in the 2020 wines!

Tasting Notes: A modern blend of classic varieties. The aromatics are fragrant and comples. Notes of dark plum , mulberry and licorice with floral highlights. The medium bodied palate is supported by a fine and powdery tannin profile with a core of plush generous fruit , dark chocolate and a hint of varietal leaf.
