From the defined borders of our oldest and finest vineyard blocks, the Single Vineyard Series showcases the translation from terroir into wines of unique style and flavour.

2021 was a subtle growing season with no sustained heat compared to the 2018, 2019 and 2020 vintages, offering a slow and prolonged engustment period. This advantage enabled the fruit to reach ideal flavour ripeness before sugar ripeness. The result is an increase in flavour compounds while the grape maintains its natural acidity, as demonstrated by this fresh and structured wine. The fruit for this wine was hand-picked at optimal ripeness from one of our finest old vine Grenache vineyards in McLaren Flat. The gentle nature of harvest plus close proximity to our winery allowing rapid transport to crush, ensured that its fruit expression, freshness and natural acid profile were completely preserved.
