96 points - The Real Review*
"Complex cabernet aromas with berry fruits mid-weight with fine tannins, very graceful in the mouth with a joyous bright ripe fruit length and cedar and lingering red fruits. Its clean, layered and complex and vibrant especially for its age."

- Tasting Notes
The growing season started with a record wet winter. Spring was great, resulting in a good even bud burst and flowering. A record hot January and early February 2017 resulted in an early start for chardonnay harvest in late February. The seasons rain and cool weather in early March combined with excellent dry conditions allowed the red varieties to start the harvest mid-April. Resulting in moderate crops and produced excellent quality fruit. The fruit is from a Block 2 at Koomooloo. The Fruit is handpicked and chilled overnight and then destemmed (1-2T open fermenters). It is held for about 3-4 days before spontaneous fermentation. Wine is pumped over an irrigator twice a day until fermentation is nearly complete, then plunged regularly for two weeks and then lightly pressed to barrel; held for 18months before going to bottle.
