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.
