Growing Conditions

A challenging vintage due to rain, rain & rain. However, the viticulture team was able to deal very effectively with each problem, through meticulous canopy management & judicious use of organically approved sprays, meaning quality remained strong.


Malbec was picked from our original Wilabrup site on 24th March and on the Karridale site on 26th March. A parcel of Tempranillo (10.5% of the blend) was picked on the Karridale site on 9th March. Both vineyards are sustainably farmed following organic principles


The wine was bottled on 10th August 2021


One batch was made with whole-bunch ferment or carbonic maceration, for spice & berry brightness. The other batch was open-fermented & hand-plunged for nine days, before pressing & a brief stint in barrel.


Just under 4 months in neutral barrels


Vivid purple/red
