Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from 1998 plantings, in our north facing Forrest, Jarrah and Blinman blocks. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Production Notes
The 2016 vintage begun with a hot Spring, likely due to a strong El NiƱo influence, with October, November and December considerably warmer than the previous season. The repercussions were good with a nice even flowering, providing consistency of fruit through the blocks.
