2012 was a one of those wonderful year’s where mother nature provides the kind of climatic conditions that sees both winemakers and vignerons get excited.
We saw sufficient, but not excessive rainfall which fell at the right times. There was also a lack of excessive heat. These combined ensuring that the ripening cycle was slow and deliberate resulting in great fruit depth, structure and balance to many of the wines produced from this year.

Winery Tasting Notes
Dark cherry red, with purple, black hues Colour
Expressive dark berry fruit, a hint of cre Bouquet aminess and some subtle controlled oak spice
Abundant, soft up front notes of plums and Palate: blackcurrant are followed by a deep inky feel to the wine, all of which provide a fullness of mouth feel before a fine tannin frame arrives to provide a clear direction and structure. The dark berry fruit returns to help the wine roll out through a long, comforting finish.
