Vintage Report


Starting early March, the 2018 Vintage was distinguished by the temperate weather conditions leading to even ripening that in turn lead to great fermentation conditions for wines with excellent quality.

The grapes came into the winery at a steady pace with excellent colour and breadth of flavour shown as soon as the fruit was first crushed.

Ferments were easily controlled allowing efficient extraction of tannins and flavours from the skins during pump-overs.

Malolactic fermentation moved quickly during the oak maturation phase to reveal the intensity and depth of character of the wines which will be the hallmark of 2018 Vintage.
