Winemaker Comments
The Beechworth fruit makes up two thirds off this wine. Beechworth had sufficient winter rainfall in 2018 to see the vines off to a great bud burst. A cool, dry, early growing season saw the vines in good health and then 200mm of rain fell in early December. This resulted in great canopy growth which sheltered the vines during the heat spike in mid-January. The Hunter Valley had its third consecutive dry vintage, producing classic medium weight Shiraz in pristine condition. The Hunters usual dry winter prevailed with a small amount of Spring/early Summer rain giving low yields of high quality fruit. McLaren Vale had a dry lead up the 2019 harvest through spring and over the 18/19 summer, resulting in lower crops and rapid ripening.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with lamb, veal and pasta dishes.
