The Character

The Story

2020 posed many challenges throughout Australia. Another intense drought year through the growing season was followed by one of the most devastating bushfire seasons this country has ever seen. Fortunately McLaren Vale was largely unaffected by this devastation and the early signs indicate 2020 to be a very special vintage; one to savor. Moderate weather throughout the picking season, combined with lower yields allowed the flavors to develop harmoniously and in balance. Varietal expression was excellent with Shiraz and Grenache showing lovely intense flavor without excessive tannin or alcohol.
