Overview

Good soaking rains during winter and early spring provided ample soil moisture for the start of the growing season. Spring was relatively cool with below average temperatures for the months of October and November.

A heavy downpour of rain during flowering led to reduced berry number per bunch in the Grenache particularly, leading to lower yields but intense flavours. However, the rain and cool weather was short lived, with a return to below average rain from October to February and above average temperatures in December through to March. The prolonged warmer temperatures resulted in a significantly slower veraison this season, but the vines coped well under the conditions and welcomed some cooler weather late in the ripening period. Berry sizes were smaller across the vineyard and show promising fruit concentration. As always, the vineyard was entirely hand picked with each parcel of fruit carefully selected.

Winery Tasting Notes

The 2014 vintage has wonderful balance and intensity of flavour, it has great appeal now but will last the distance. Bright dark berry fruit and lifted spice dominate the aromas, with underlying scents of pepper and subtle French oak. The palate is plush and silky, loaded with dark fruited shiraz intensity. Fine structure and excellent concentration.
