Winemaker comments

Winemaker Notes
Usual stuff here … Ben (with some help) picked it, then Troy and Greg crushed it into the fermenter. Troy rehydrated the yeast and then it was fermented. It was on skins for about a week before being pressed to separate the wine and the skins. The wine was then left for a period of time to mature before blending and bottling.

Tasting Note
The Winemakers Range is all about delivering quite simply the best Western Australian wine at the best price. These wines are typically a blend of both the Margaret River and Swan Valley regions. The riper, richer notes from the Swan Valley compliment the cooler climate, elegant and sophisticated characters from Margaret River. These wines are all about balance, harmony and drinkability without burning a hole in your purse or wallet! So go on, have a crack and let us know the outcome! As always, enjoy in moderation.

Vintage Conditions

Vineyard Notes
The 2018 vintage was a return to the fantastic conditions that WA is known for. The preceding winter and early spring rainfall provided a good base of ground water for the vines to thrive. November was warm and dry, setting up the vines perfectly through flowering and fruit set. An extended, dry and warm summer through to the end of picking in mid-April, produced outstanding fruit to make wine from. All grapes harvested this season are of exceptional quality and showing great varietal characteristics.
