Cooler conditions compared to previous vintage saw harvest get underway in the Geographe at the end of January, with yields for 2021 similar to the 2020 Vintage. This resulted in optimum fruit ripeness of excellent quality from well-managed blacks.

Whole berry, hand plunged, separate ferments and blended prior to oak maturation where it spent 4 months in seasoned French Oak. Expect soft chalky tannins, with bright blue fruits

A Modern take on a GSM, Tempranillo dominant blend 43%, Shiraz 37%, and Grenache 20%. Separate ferments then blended prior to Oak maturation spending 4 months in New Seasoned French Oak. Floral, raspberry and plum on the nose, subtle chalky tannins, with a fine acid lift. Dry dusty dried herb character on the palate leaving a dry savory finish.

94 points – Ray Jordan WA Wine: Review


Gained top points from Matthews, who thought it: “A different spin on chenin blanc with new oak vanilla bean notes on the nose. Surprisingly, works quite well on the palate. Glossy green apple, baked pastries and crème fraiche. Nice line and
length, with seamless acidity.” I loved its apple/stone fruit combination, apple-skin texture and length.

Appealed to me with its positive, gooseberry and feijoa aromas. The palate’s round, with flavours turning more to stonefruits. It finishes with subtle sweetness and good ength. Honan noted, “A subtle lick of volatile acidity on the inhale. Saline sweetness on the palate, lemon and passionfruit. Moreishness. Great carry, compels another sip.
