Vintage Conditions

For the 2021 vintage, that magic has been delivered in wines with bright fruit and subtle power, lovely rounded tannin’s in the reds and ripe fruit acids in the whites. 2021 was a very cool year and one of the wettest on record for Gundagai. It saw fruit yield down by around 30% mainly due to the drought condition from the previous few years and disease pressure that comes with a wet year.

Winemaking Notes

The 2021 vintage is proof of Barbera’s tolerance and suitability to warm-climate extremes. In fact, the variety thrived, and the resultant wine is bright, fresh and beautiful. The fruit was hand-picked and destemmed to stainless steel, where it underwent cold maceration for 72 hours. A cultured yeast was introduced, and the ferment was allowed to warm into the high 20oC range for desired flavour and tannin extraction. Pressed off skins after a 2 weeks post-ferment maceration, a small portion was put to French oak for 4 months.
