Winemaker’s Notes: A great cool year for this variety.These vineyards are planted on a northerly and slightlyeasterly aspect in the Yarra Valley with a yield around 2.0 tonneto the acre. The fruit was gently destemmed without crushingthe berries and the must was divided into clonal batches, MV6,115, 114. Natural ferments reaching 38°C ensured maximumextraction of flavours and other essential fruit componentsincluding tannins and colour. Maceration extended up to 45days with gentle hand plunging and pumping over. The winewas aged in 33% new French oak for a period of 12 months,with a further 12 months in bottle prior to release. Tasting Note: Quite complex on the nose, this winedeliveries opulent fresh lifted sweet ripe wild strawberries andcherries with some savoury toasty notes and someundergrowth truffle. On the palate, it is velvety, fruity, andlively with acidic linearity that lingers and indicates that itwill develop with further aging. Quite tight at the moment, itwill boastfully open to be a powerful wine with balanced acidityat the finish as well as good velvety fine tannins. As a result,it will be a wine that will continue to build in structure andflavour whilst simultaneously harmonising. Being a cool year,the wine will continue to develop and will take on more truffleand earthy complexity as it ages. Cellaring: 10 years plus
