2017 Vintage

Vintage 2017 was pleasant with a mild summer that started to heat up towards the end of the growing season. The Old Hill block was picked on the 5th of March, later than previous harvests.

Halliday Rating - 91 points

"Fermented and matured in French barriques for 12 months. Has greater weight and complexity than its vintage sibling, reflected in its higher alcohol, longer time in barrel and deeper, though bright, colour. This has not come as a problem vis a vis elegance and mouthfeel."

- James Halliday, 01 August 2019
