A New Maris Sol

2019 Maris Sol Preservative Free Grenache Mataro

A penchant for stepping out of the ordinary was the nucleus for our new addition, a preservative free Grenache Mataro from fruit sourced from our own estate blocks.
A style of bright fruit, fresh and vibrant, with a juicy unctuous core of blackberry, redcurrant, plum and savoury edges, no preservative has been used in the process.

From the Winemakers, vintage 2019

From the Winemakers...

Kim Horton & Dougal Herd

Another year flies by and vintage is almost upon us again with Vintage 2019 shaping to be one of the more interesting years.
 
Climatically, in a nutshell, the season has been cool and dry. The five months until this point at the end of January have yielded little rain, about 70mm less than this time last year.
The cooler weather has also disrupted flowering and fruit set resulting in much smaller bunch sizes and high incidence of hen and chicken. The cooler conditions have continued into January, and January 2019 average temperature of 21.3 is two degrees Celsius lower than the 23.3 of 2016.
 
So what does this mean? With still much of the season to unfold, anything is still possible, however we are bracing ourselves for small crops of intensely flavoured fruit, especially in whites, and keeping our fingers crossed for an Indian Summer to ensure good ripeness of flavour and tannin in the reds. It also must be noted the distinct lack of Eucalypt blossom this season will create bird pressure and fruit netting will form the basic defence against crows and silvereyes.
