We have put together a limited edition 6-pack showcasing our new release Single Vineyard wines plus a few older vintages for comparison. The 2015 Pinots and Shiraz included are the first vintage from returning winemaker Matt Holmes and we couldn't be more pleased with their quality and expression of site.
These packs will be available until 30th June (unless sold out beforehand) and will feature:
2011 SRH Chardonnay
2013 SRH Chardonnay
2013 Serré Pinot Noir
2015 Serré Pinot Noir
2015 De La Terre Pinot Noir
2015 De La Roche Shiraz

Budburst and harvest returned to long term average timing for the 2016/17 growing season. Picking commenced on March 2, and was completed by April 21.
After excellent winter rain, the season was moderately dry (mostly consisting of heavier rainfall events rather than light rain), and only very occasionally hot.
A fuller canopy of leaves slowed the ripening of all varieties, and retained greater natural acidity. Sugar concentration at harvest and final alcohol levels are low, but flavours are vibrant and typical of both variety and site.
