  • Vine to Wine
  • Tasting Notes
The 2016 growing season was warm and dry. The spring rains set up the season and good rains in January allowed very good flavour development whilst maintaining natural acid. The vintage was a couple of weeks ahead of the typical. The hottest day for summer was 35.6°C.
The fruit is from a range of blocks at Koomooloo. The grapes were handpicked early in the morning, chilled, destemmed and fermented in small open pots (1-2T). Fermentation with native yeasts was allowed to occur.
Barrels: 100% new, all French barriques from a range of coopers.
"Deep, dark red colour. Black fruit with intense berries combine seamlessly with savoury, secondary characters. The long, refined palate has eaten up the 100% new oak allowing expression of the fine tannins. This wine has stylish depth and intensity." PS
