Vineyard Notes

Sourced from the ‘Lochleven’ vineyard in Pokolbin and ‘Glenguin’ Estate vineyard in Broke.

Winemaking

2021 was a welcome return to vintage normality. Good rainfall started in March 2020 and continued throughout the year. This set up the 2021 vintage well. Yields were back to reasonable levels.

Tasting Notes

A bright dark Crimson colour, aromas of red fruits, plums and raspberry jam. The French oak adds spice and complexity. The tannins are silky and fine. An impressive length of flavour for an entry level wine.

Peak Drinking / Cellaring Potential

Medium to long term.

Food Matches
