founder Samuel Smith, his spirit of independence and
conviction to invest in the land and make great wine.
VINTAGE CONDITIONS
The growing season began with a wet winter and spring, providing
plenty of water throughout the root zone for the vines to access. Spring
and early summer temperatures were mild and below average, resulting
in a long, even ripening period. Warm, dry days with cool nights during
late summer and autumn were ideal for grape growing, producing
grapes with a richness and purity of fruit, balanced with concentration of
flavour.
VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING
The wild yeasts present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate
fermentation and then cultured winery yeasts were added to complete
the process. Different fermentation options allowed us to optimise each
individual batch and promote excellent colour, rishness and texture.
Matured for 10 months in 15% new French, Hungarian and American
hogsheads, barriques & octaves, and the balance in old octaves,
hogsheads and barriques. The result is a wine with excellent depth of
colour and a rich generosity.
