    A stunning ‘typical’ vintage for Margaret River for both red and white varieties. The Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines were particularly superb.

    2009

    An exceptional vintage for Margaret River, with textbook spring conditions setting the vines up perfectly to ripen the fruit in early 2009. A couple of well-timed rain events during early ripening quickly followed by warm, dry condition produced wines of great character.

    2007

    A warm to very warm vintage with rapid ripening, concentrated slightly tannic reds. Red wines look spectacular young but there are concerns over their longevity.

    2006

    Coolest Margaret River vintage on record. Elegant, finely structured wines but both reds and whites lack flavour concentration and reds lack the structure for longevity.

    Similar to 2002, with a cool growing season that encouraged vine growth and health. The dry ripening period ensured full flavour was achieved in all varieties and elegance in the reds.

    2004

    An excellent Margaret River vintage particularly suited to the red variety Cabernet Sauvignon. A cool, even growing season that saw strong, healthy vine growth with a warm, dry ripening season. This maximised fruit and wine quality, as well as tannin ripeness in the reds.

    A very good vintage for both reds and whites in which the growing and ripening season was punctuated with minor rainfall events that encouraged healthy vine growth and flavour development.

    2001

    A mild to warm and dry vintage that was particularly suited to the red varieties. Vine growth halted early in the season with the even, long ripening period producing remarkably intense wines.
