The 2014 vintage was built on a sound foundation of sub-soil moisture with excellent (above average) rainfall throughout the winter of 2013. The rainfall ceased almost completely from the end of November through to the end of March providing ideal growing conditions. Abundant Marri blossom leading up to, and during, harvest kept bird pressure very low, and yields were average for most varieties. In summary; 2014 was yet another excellent season, continuing the dream run of vintages we have had in Margaret River over the last eight years! Fruit for this blend was predominantly estate grown on our Boodjudup and Stevens Road vineyards in the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River, and was supplemented with a small portion (11%) of Shiraz selected from a mature vineyard in the Frankland River region. COLOUR Deep red with purple hues NOSE Dark berry fruits and fragrant floral notes spiced with hints of peppercorn, redskins and subtle toasty oak influences. PALATE A full-bodied wine, offering ample depth with plenty of ripe forest fruits; blackberries, redcurrants and spice. The moreish, jubey fruit and approachable tannins combine to produce a generous wine with a supple structure and a wonderful persistence of flavour. Perfectly approachable in its youth, this wine will comfortably cellar for several years.
