TECHNICAL NOTES

REGION: Margaret River

VINTAGE NOTES: Vintage 2017 for Margaret River was very cool and quite late. An interesting year for reds – vibrant colours and aromatic lift being a standout feature and most suited to this style that we have assembled.

COMPOSITION: Shiraz 51%: Tempranillo 40%: Malbec 9%

WINEMAKING: Batches of each variety were selected in the vineyards especially for this project and fermented separately. Tasting of each component revealed the best composition with a predominance of Shiraz for fruit sweetness, and Tempranillo for spice and Malbec for colour and aromatic lift. Minimal oak time to preserve the positives.

ALCOHOL: 13.6% vol.     STANDARD DRINKS: 8
