Made with the same approach as the Reserve wine, this wine is produced from a different selection of fruit parcels and barrel combinations.
All the 2015 wines are highly perfumed, and this is no exception. It displays lifted raspberry aromas, with a hint of earthiness and subtle oak. The flavours combine bright fruit with fine tannins, the elegance and finesse reflecting the excellent season.
2015 vintage was an excellent vintage, mild conditions and cool nights persisted from veraison to harvest. Fruit was hand-picked in excellent condition, with high colour intensity and flavour expression.
The fruit was picked from various blocks with vines aged between 15 and 28 years old, grown on high north facing slopes to maximize sunshine hours. Northerly winds from Long Gully provide good air flow and favourable micro-climates across the Estate.
