Winemaker's Notes

1999 season again saw the continuation of very dry conditions. A cool spring was followed by above average temperatures during summer and veraison. The very dry season was interrupted by rain in early march, however it was Coonawarra's good fortune that continued dry weather prevailed and contributed to high quality fruit. 1999 vintage might well be praised and recorded among the best for Coonawarra. Yields were slightly above average, the wines display good varietal flavours and good palate depth.

Color Deep crimson red with garnet. Nose A balanced, complex fruit and oak nose. Intense berry fruits and some dusty mulberry with earthy tones. Elegant oak showing cedar and faint smoke complement the fruit aromas. Palate Intense palate flavours of berries and plums with hints of mulberries combined with attractive cedary oak. Soft assertive, slightly chalky tannins and a fine acid balance. Vinification Matured in oak barrels, of which half were new. Our barrels, predominantly French oak, are sourced from forests near the centre of France, and a smaller proportion was American oak.
