Red apples, summer berries, nutmeg subtle hints of forest floor and wet granite.


Bright flavours of red cherries, sour plums and cinnamon on the entry, guided by fleshy textures of crushed apple flesh and satsuma plums. A vital line of chalky acidity and white pepper drive the palate to a crystalline finish of red fruits and spicy oak.

Growing Conditions

The 2020 vintage was unforgettable. The region experienced a perfect growing season with warmer than average spring temperatures and ideal summer conditions. Little to no rain, low disease risk and timely flowering of the Marri trees to distract the birds, eased pressure in the vineyard. The relative ease of vintage was in stark contrast to the happenings of the world at the time, with ferocious bushfires ravaging the East Coast and the Covid-19 outbreak unravelling. Yields were down in 2020 resulting in exceptional fruit concentration.


The fruit was hand-picked, chilled overnight and gently destemmed as whole berries to open fermenters for a two day cold soak before fermentation. Hand-plunged three times daily for nine days, followed by gentle separation of the wine from the skins. The wine was fermented in Burgundian-style oak barrels, 25% which were new. The wine was then aged in oak for 10 months, after which it was clarified and bottled.


This is a fresh drink now style, but can be aged for up to 8 years for added complexity.
