Winemakers are always fidgeting around in the cellar with small and often quite unique batches of wines, mostly as trials to see what is possible in our portfolio wines.

Commonly, the winemaker will tuck them into the back of the winery with no one awares! The Maris Sol label is a format in which we can bottle very small parcels that have to fit the criteria of being both unique and interesting. The more obscure….the better!

The Maris Sol blend is a hedonistic blend of perfume, juicy ripe fruit and structured tan-nin. The Tempranillo clone is the requena, imported from Spain in 1964, the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon clones have stood the test of time in Western Australia, clones valued for generous weight and depth.

Winemaker 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. Rolling on to January, the Geographe region received 74mm over four days of rain on January 18, proving a test for most Vineyards, however the fruit remained pristine and fresh.
