Wines from the 2017 Adelaide Hills vintage will long be remembered for their extraordinary quality and depth of flavour. Above average rainfall during winter of 2016 created perfect growing conditions. The cold, moist spring was ideal for flowering and fruit set and this cool trend continued through summer and into autumn when the grapes were picked. Below average mean temperatures slowed down fruit ripening during summer resulting in a delayed harvest but ensured optimum vine balance and production of intense colour, flavours and aromas in the grapes. The bouquet has a floral lift with hints of apricots. There is a generous palate supported by a tight structure and crisp acidity.
