- Tasting Notes & Reviews
The 1314 Rose is made from Shiraz fruit grown on our winery block, planted in 1990 and extended in 1996. The soils are dense clay over limestone and the vineyard is farmed on organic principles.
Bunches of Shiraz came to the winery in very good condition with optimal ripeness, and were delicately whole bunch pressed and racked to tank. The wine went through fermentation in stainless steel and was rested on lees prior to bottling in July.
The 2022 growing season started out with substantial winter and spring rains as a result of La Nina but dried out around Christmas and into the new year. A warm Jan and Feb led to a very consistent and well paced ripening period, with average yields across most varieties and very good quality across the estate.
We had another good year of rain across winter: the soils warmed up slowly which led to normal timing for budburst. The La Niña rains
continued through the first half of the growing season (630mm July to June) but eased after Christmas, although storms and hail were often in the forecast and nearby. Temperatures increased significantly in the second half of the season to a total of 1430 Growing Degree Days.
We started picking Chardonnay early March, and with only a couple of exceptions (Sauv Blanc and Riesling) the yields for every block were
near long term average. The fruit was in very good condition, picking weather was mostly very helpful and all the ferments went smoothly. Malic acid levels are average but most lots will go through malolactic fermentation in the
At this stage the wines show promise: a nice balance of stone fruits and citrus in the Chardonnay, structure and transparency to season and site in the Pinot Noir and Shiraz.
