Winemaker's Notes

Stephanie Toole's "Cordon Cut" is undoubtedly one of Australia's greatest dessert wines. It is something quite magical. "Cordon Cut" refers to a unique and risky process which involves cutting the canes when the grapes are ripe, allowing the remaining fruit to concentrate and raisin naturally on the vine. The result from the 2006 harvest is again a lush, intense yet elegant mouthful of delicious fruit cocktail of mandarins, pears, lemons, stone fruit and honey. Hints of spice and flinty minerals add to its beauty.
