Overview

2012 was a wonderful vintage in the Barossa with ideal ripening conditions ensuring the vineyards yielded beautifully balanced and expressive fruit. For Merlot particularly it was a year where we saw enough sun to ensure optimum ripeness, but a lack of any significant heat ensured ripening occurred in a slow, steady manner allowing harvesting decisions to be made easily and in a timely way.
