Fruit for these wines comes partly from our Estate managed vineyards at Red Hill plus fruit purchased from a number of carefully selected vineyards from other sub-regions of the Mornington Peninsula. The quality of these wines are often equal to many other vineyards best (James Halliday)

Winery Tasting Notes
Early disease pressure followed by cold and wet conditions during ripening meant fastidious vineyard management was pivotal in a successful 2011 vintage. With the Paringa vineyards in good health patience was then required as fruit maturity was reached up to four weeks later than average. In the winery berries were de-stemmed (100%) and fermented in two-tonne open fermenters. Maturation took place in French Oak barriques.
Lifted cherry and raspberry fruit is backed by clove and nutmeg spice.
The palate shows good weight and structure with sweet fruit length.
