As the first of our 2017 wines start to walk out the door we are excited to be sharing what will become recognised as one of our “great’ vintages. Freshness, fruit weight and high expression all contribute to the balance and moreish quality of these wines.
When we started to assemble these wines from their dormant winter months in large wood, we were already seduced by the pleasure and purity shared by these wines. After the shock of bottling, we have seen the wines take a little longer than normal to bounce back, possibly due to the rarely seen low alcohols (range of 8.5%-10.5%).
My recommendation – jump straight in a try a couple now but also stick a bunch in the cellar. These wines will give you 30 plus years in the cellar conservatively.
