Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Very pale pink colour, lifted blossom, papaya, crushed raspberry, strawberry and pink musk. The purity of forest berries are evident on a juicy palate, creamy and almost chalky with a light savoury finish.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from our Cameron block which were planted in 2009. 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
Minimal time on skins allows for a pale pink colour and less phenolic extract as juice is drained to fermenter for settling and racking. Cold fermentation retains the fresh crushed red fruits prior to racking, filtration and early bottling. Yield in 2018 is at or just below average within the region, The south west of western Australia also had one of the strongest displays of Marri bloom that I can recall, allowing crops to ripen without bird pressure.
Winemaker Notes
Solid Winter rains were followed by a wonderfully warm Spring in 2017 heralding encouraging conditions for Vintage 2018 and indeed led to a long even Indian Summer. One rain event in mid January (35mm) was a blessing, and from then on vintage was dictated by long warm and dry days. Yield in 2018 is at or just below average within the region, The south west of western Australia also had one of the strongest displays of Marri bloom that I can recall, allowing crops to ripen without bird pressure.
