2019 Tasting Notes

The Vintage

The 2019 vintage was preceded by a drier winter and spring until drenching rains in December provided good soil moisture for ripening. Fruit was flavoursome and good quality with overall average yield and bunch sizes.

Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon

The nose of the 2019 Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon is showing a combination of Meyer lemon, grapefruit and a hint of kiwifruit and green pear. These fruits follow on to the palate with a freshness combined with refined acid creating a minerally, well-rounded finish.

Cellaring potential 8 years.

Gamay

The 2019 is showing aromatics of sour cherry, red berries and hints of cardamom spice. The red berry fruit carries through onto the palate where fine grain tannins and natural acidity combine with earthy undertones to develop a balanced palate with a lingering finish.

Cellaring potential 8 years plus.
