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

Handpicked on 14th February 2021, the fruit was immediately whole bunch pressed to stainless steel and settled for 48 hours. The juice was then racked and fermented with an aromatic yeast strain at cool temperatures in stainless steel to retain freshness and enhance varietal character. A small portion was fermented in older French oak barriques to add complexity. Following some lees ageing to enhance texture the wine was blended and bottled.
