WINEMAKER’S NOTE: Bright red purple with medium intensity. Fine tannins across the palate together with spiced cherry flavours.
VINTAGE: The 2016 was especially a benign vintage for whites and early reds. The maturation period through the growing season saw the normal Margaret River weather patterns giving rise to good canopy development and soil moisture levels with good maturities across all varieties.
