The first single vineyard wine off the 19 year old Sauvage Vineyard vines in Bannockburn.

Vintage Notes: A very warm vintage with above average temperatures in December and January.
Mid-season conditions were also very calm, with little wind and no significant rainfall, so the season progressed well ahead of usual timing. Some rain, and then overall milder conditions in February and March meant that ripening slowed favourably. The 2018 harvest was earlier than usual in the region, commencing on 14th March, however the late season conditions had helped to give lovely ripeness whilst retaining balance and finesse.

This wine compromises a mix of clones from different areas within our site. Enticing aromas of spice, mushrooms, and dark red fruits accompany earth and herb tones. The palate shows wonderful elegance and focus, supported by a textural core, with fine lengthy tannins driving persistence. Expected cellaring 7-10 years.
