A style which exudes vibrancy and complexity. Distinctive generosity of dark berry fruits with mouthwatering tannin which matches perfectly to food. Fermented in open top fermenters, hand plunged twice daily at temperatures averaging 28 degrees. Winemaking encourages deep and dense structures, but with spice and minerality.

Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from the Cameron block which was 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.

Winemaker Notes
The season for the Geographe wine region was cool and dry. The five months until the end of January had yielded little rain, about 70mm less than the same period last year The cooler weather also disrupted flowering and fruit set resulting in much smaller bunch sizes and high incidence of hen and chicken. The January 2019 average temperature of 21.3 was two degrees Celsius lower than the 23.3 of 2016.
