The Vintage: The 2015 growing season started out as a challenging one with record breaking cold temperatures in February and January. The growing season started out with a very wet June but the remainder of the summer months were dry with below average rainfall. Harvest conditions were excellent and good weather prevailed for much of the harvest period. Despite a rocky start, the 2015 vintage came together nicely with good harvest weather. While crops were slightly reduced by winter damage, the vintage yielded grapes with good to excellent flavour concentration and complexity.
Tasting Notes: An fruity, slightly floral and spicy nose accented with fresh red berry fruit such as cherry and cranberry. The palate is medium bodied with an elegant structure created by delicate acidity and firm tannin. Ripe flavours of beetroot, cedar spice and wild strawberry. Drinking beautifully now, this wine should continue to develop in bottle into 2020 for added complexity and silky texture.
