2015 was an excellent vintage in the Yarra Valley. A warmer season with cool nights produced ripe fruit flavours with strong tannins. Temperatures hovered in the low to mid-twenties from veraison to harvest. Cool nights and mild days gave optimum ripening conditions, with the fruit in perfect condition at harvest.
A long north-west facing block with clay loam soils. The block has long produced red varieties with full flavour and a firm tannin structure. The northerly aspect allows for ideal conditions for this late-ripening variety.
