Tasmania is the mecca for cool climate winemaking.

A true reflection of the 2020 vintage. Lightness of touch and delicacy. A layered wine that will evolve in the glass. 

Gorgeous aromas of rhubarb, cherry and rose petals. The palate sings with superfine, mouthcoating tannin and perfectly balanced oak. From our vineyards on both sides of the Tamar Valley.

SEASON

By March, ‘unprecedentedâ€?was already the catchword for 2020, a term that could equally describe the season and vintage. The COVID situation escalated over the closing weeks of the season, posing unique challenges for harvest and vintage operations, which we managed with a few elegant pivots.

Unlike many other regions in eastern Australia, the season was quite cool and we had some rain, so that fruit retained great natural acid and the harvest was naturally low yields of clean fruit with excellent flavour.

WINEMAKING

As always, timing of picking was critical, and our team got it right again �pristine fruit of precisely balanced flavour and freshness reached the winery in perfect condition. It was destemmed and hand sorted before cold soak and fermentation in open fermenters with hand plunging. A small portion (about 10%) was fermented separately in whole bunches to add complexity and options at blending.

The wine was matured for 10 months in a selection of French oak barrels, about 30% new.
