Hand-picked from the Timbertop vineyard, 565 metres above sealevel in the northwestern slopes of Mt Timbertop. Crushed to open tubs in mid-March, the fruit had excellent balance for the warm vintage and was fermented for 12 days, hand plunging regularly to aid colour and tannin development, before pressing off skins to finish secondary ferment and maturing for 14 months in 1 year-old (60%) and seasoned French oak puncheons.

An opulent and supple wine of rich purple colour and lush flavours of ripe mulberry and plums with length and velvety tannins. Halliday 90pts. Drink 2021 to 2026.
