Vintage Conditions

For the 2021 vintage, that magic has been delivered in wines with bright fruit and subtle power, lovely rounded tannins 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

Grown in the Maragle Valley deep in the NSW Snowy Mountains, south-east of the township of Tumbarumba, the Maragle Valley is a sheltered valley environment, with suitably warm-ripening days and cold nights. Grapes are handpicked, whole-bunch pressed and with minimal settling, fermented in both medium-toast French oak barriques and stainless-steel fermenters. Matured for 6-months in oak with bi-weekly stirring of yeast lees sediments to improve texture. As fruit freshness is desired, MLF is not encouraged.

Tasting notes

Pale straw with green hues lively with citrus aromas hinting at mature lime and grapefruit. The palate is driven by a beautiful fresh acidity with a texture driven persistent finish.
