Our Vineyards
“Our family vineyard is located in the picturesque and historic
Padthaway valley, 300 km south of Adelaide. Our rich, fertile
terra rosa soils, environmentally friendly viticulture, low yield and
exceptional fruit is how we consistently produce outstanding wines.
Small parcels of the highest quality fruit are selected from our family
vineyard and handcrafted to create wines with amazing depth of
flavour, style and balance…” – David Bryson

Winemaking Notes
Fermentation took place over 10 – 12 days in a combination of open
and static fermenters. The temperature was closely monitored to
ensure the wine retains its natural fruit expression. New and older
French and American oak was used for the maturation of selected
wine parcels over a period of 11 months. These parcels were put
together from our family estate to best demonstrate the depth and
character of our fruit, balanced by integrated oak.

Vintage Overview
Harvest commenced three weeks later than usual due to the cooler
temperatures and slower ripening. This has resulted in good parcels of
Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with lovely aromatics & flavour.
Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon have good colour with concentrated
berry flavours, vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in
our wines.

Tasting Notes
Lifted spice and ripe mulberry/blackberry aromas are complemented
with chocolate, cedar and cinnamon on the nose. Well-integrated oak
tannin provides flavours of clove and supple texture, which supports
the rich plum, blackberry and mocha. The overall structure is supple
and generous with fine-grained tannin and a lingering finish.
