This 2016 wine is bursting with ripe red fruits and black cherries that will the nostrils with mocha, and white pepper hints adding to the complexity. Medium bodied in structure, the complexity and silky tannins flow through the fruitful pepper and spice finish.
Fortunately, a timely rain and mild conditions delayed the start allowing flavour and colour to catch up with sugar. Considering the dry winter, yields generally were a little above average due to a slightly warmer spring, great flowering and fruit set conditions. This combined with mild, late summer weather meant the grower and winemaker were happy with another solid vintage tucked away. By early March, 70% of the harvest was in and with another nice drink from the heavens, vintage slowed right down building flavour in the late ripening varieties like Grenache and Mataro, as well as great results from our Eden Valley reds and whites. We finished harvest with our Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon on the 15th of April. This vintage really highlights how tenacious and robust grape vines are, producing good yields and great quality in a very dry season (but they can’t sustain dry conditions forever). Fortunately, a more normal winter this year with much needed rain is refilling the soil and water resources.
