Release of the 2018 on July 25th
The 2018 growing season was characterised by an even and mild spring, that lead into a warmer than average summer. There were plenty of fine and mild days, but the season remained dry.. In fact it was very similar to 2016 and 2013, in terms of the weather and as it turns out the wines as well.
We began picking in mid February with the Chardonnay, slightly earlier than normal. The Pinot Noir was about average in the last week of February and then quite a break into early autumn when we finished in mid April with the Grenache and the Italians.
The 2018 vintage is another high quality vintage in the Yarra Valley, the wines are fine, detailed, beautifully balanced, with lovely density and concentration.
