The 2020 Vintage:
The 2020 vintage experienced two distinct climactic phases. Winter and spring of 2019 were relatively dry. A heat wave in October disrupted flowering, which led to significantly lowered yields. In January 2020 the situation reversed; there was good rain which supported the vines to maintain healthy leaves and the fruit ripened very well. Ultimately yields were very low at harvest, but fruit quality was exceptional.
All grapes were Estate grown from our Dowd’s Lane vineyard on the Western side of the Mount Camel hillside. The vines are unirrigated and very low yielding, at less than 1 tonne to the acre. The vines are cane-pruned by hand and wrapped to a single wire trellis to encourage some bunch shading during the heat of summer.
The fruit was harvested by hand and fermented in stainless steel tanks under temperature control. The wine was bottled in July 2020.
