Autumn 2015

We have now bottled our 2013 Merlot, Shiraz, and Tempranillo. All have an unusual intensity, but will need to be aged a bit longer before release - particularly the Tempranillo. We have also just finished our Cabernet and Shiraz rosés. The Cabernet rosé has a very savoury character and is our favourite. Finally we continue the ageing of our Croatian-style Semillon, a considerable departure from the traditional Hunter Semillons, bringing a roundness and body not seen from the local tradition.

Harvest 2015

Due to ill health we did not harvest any grapes this season. In the winery we have continued to finish the winemaking on our 2014 whites and rosés, and continue the ageing on our excellent 2014 reds.
