Winemakers Comments

Decent winter rains heading into spring gave an ideal start to the growing season. The vines were crop-thinned to ensure even and complete ripening, with adequate canopy to ensure the even development of abundant flavour and tannin. - Jules Ashmead & Brock Harrison

From a parcel of 1915 plantings out in Greenock, this has a very fresh delivery of ultra-ripe dark-berry and plum aromas, as well as chocolate and currants with some orange peel and asphalt. The palate is immensely concentrated and has very rich dark-plum, blackberry and chocolate flavors with a streak of roasted coffee and graphite at the finish. This is very rich, very intense and very deeply fruited with bold tannin architecture.
