Shiraz (100%)
Margaret River
After a long, and relatively cold and wet winter budburst was later than usual, and about a week or two later than last season. There was still some wet, windy spring weather which affected fruit set. Despite the late start to the season, the fantastic WA summer allowed the growing season to catch up with warm, fine weather and a few of very hot periods. Marri trees had a bumper year for blossom, which always bodes well, distracting birds from away from the fruit (at least for the first half of the season while the blossom lasted). There was no significant weather pressure experienced at all early in the vintage, in fact the warm weather meant that the whites were harvested at a frenetic pace in order to preserve natural acidity. Yields were relatively low however the fruit quality was excellent with great flavour intensity. In summary 2022 will be remembered as an outstanding vintage in Margaret River. All the fruit for this wine is estate grown and hand-picked from our Stevens Road vineyard in the Wallcliffe subregion of Margaret River.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red, this wine was unfined and unfiltered so a slight harmless deposit may appear in the bottom of the bottle over time.
Fresh bubble gum, red berry fruits and fragrant kirsch floral notes spiced with hints of spice.
A light bodied ‘Beaujolais-esque’ summer red wine, offering vibrancy and verve with plenty of redcurrants, pomegranate, subtle spice and some earthy stemmy characters. The moreish, strawberry fruit profile and very soft approachable tannins combine to produce an energetic wine with bright crunchy acidity.


100% handpicked whole bunches underwent wild carbonic maceration in picking bins for two weeks, sealed under carbon dioxide gas cover. This was followed by gentle pressing before finishing primary and secondary fermentation in stainless steel tank. A short maturation on lees then followed before a careful racking and cold stabilisation. Bottled early, unfined and unfiltered.

Professional Reviews

Oh me, oh my. This is delicious with its cherry pop, Sichuan pepper and heady rose petal aromas. The palate is bright and juicy with just enough tannins shaping the palate, but lively acidity is definitely in the driver’s seat. Chill this down, chill out and party on. My fave red wine for summer.
