Good winter rains filled the soil profile, with run off overflowing the winter creeks and quickly filling the dam on the estate. An even bud burst and steady shoot growth developed balanced canopies with improved average crop levels through a very dry and disease free spring. A little supplementary drip irrigation was needed from around the New Year to help the vines through the hotter weather and ensure the berries achieved the varietal flavours, ripe tannins and balanced acidity that are the recursors of good wine. The 2013 vintage was naturally disease free and has produced perfumed whites with attractive textures and deeply coloured, ripe and structured reds. Magenta in colour. The heady perfume of heritage roses leaps from the glass, followed by nuances of lemon rind, freshly turned earth and spice. A bright compote of summer fruits shines on the lively, medium weight palate. The luscious Grenache is complemented and structurally enhanced by the darker berry flavours and ripe tannins of the Shiraz and Mourvèdre, offering immediate appeal. Glorious in its youth,with age the wine will develop an attractive, savoury complexity
