Vintage comment: “Vintage 2021 was excellent in terms of vine balance, yield and therefore quality! Weather throughout the growing season was mild, with few extremes of heat or cold. We experienced early shoot development, flowering and then a lengthy ripening period. In terms of these seasonal conditions, I’d go so far as to say it’s been the most representative Coonawarra season I’ve seen in the last 20 years! In terms of harvest, vine balance was represented by optimum yields and complex flavours resulting from well developed and maintained canopies.“ – Hans Loder
