VINTAGE 2018 UPDATE #4

 

The golden weather continues and we are now well over halfway through Vintage.  All the whites and rosé are now bubbling away in tank or barrel and the winery is full of the beautiful smells of fermentation.

All the Lacey blocks: Old, Branson Rd and Watilla are harvested and looking seriously good.  Some definite Vicar contenders there.

This week we harvest more of the Parson Shiraz and the first of our Single Block wines – Road Block started this morning. Next week will probably see the House Block and Kangarilla Shiraz pick and possibly the first Cabernet harvest.

We have pressed out a bunch of Parson Shiraz now and it is top shelf.  Amazing colour and packed with classic dark McLaren Vale fruits.

P.S. The pic is of Shiraz grapes waiting their turn for the crusher – vineyard and Onkaparinga Gorge in the background. Nice.

P.P.S. Why not come down and see us this weekend and taste the last vintage of our wine so you can compare when the 2018s are released? Or better yet, come see us at Cellar Door Fest Friday night or all day Saturday and Sunday!
