2015 Vintage Report
Strikingly similar harvest to 2014 in terms of weather and yields. Similar rainfall, dry from October to March. One difference was the Marri blossom which did not flower until after harvest, this created a lot of bird pressure.
The time of harvest was almost identical to 2014, however the wine styles are different. 2015 wines are characterised by lots of perfume, purity and great elegance whereas the 2014 wines are about fruit power and purity.
2015 had some hot days, cool nights, a small amount of rain, and although the yields were low it has produced outstanding wines. Harvest finished on the 11th of March.
Colour: Light straw green
Bouquet: A great expression of Sauvignon Blanc, with white flowers notes and tropical fruit aromas.

Cellaring: Enjoy the delightful fresh characters now or over the next 5-7 years as this wine develops even further complexity.
Food: Whiting, brown butter and pomegranate salad
