Overview

The 2010 vintage in Coonawarra was relatively mild and even without any of the extremes of recent years. Harvesting starting in mid March with Merlot and continued until Early April when the last Cabernet was picked. Mid row cover crops are now fully developed on the vineyard and they kept yields to low to medium levels. The resulting wines are well balanced with good flavour, colour and intensity. Cabernet Sauvignon in particular will be exceptional.
