Sourced from the Yallingup sub-region of the Margaret River Appellation [pretty much on the Wilyabrup boundary]. The fruit was sourced from twenty year old vines, grown using a spur pruned VSP trellis on karri loam soils. The site is pretty low vigour and as such shoots are allowed to sprawl- providing a degree of shading. The fruit was grown with minimal inputs through out the growing season.
"red and black fruits, licorice, and jammy blackcurrant characters, with hints of composted earth, dried herbs and spicey cedar in the background.
The palate is deliberately moderate with restraint and elegance. The wine currently has a supple and flavorsome full palate, with lovely fine dry tannins, affording a dry finish."
