TASTING NOTES
Medium red black. Pretty nose of candied cherry with background currant, spice & cedary oak. Lovely medium bodied style with a spicy red fruit throughout with fresh hints of cola & mint, satiny oak tannins & bright acidity.
 
VINEYARD
Merlot Fruit sourced from our 40 year old 12 hectare Dry Grown Vineyard. Our old vines are not irrigated; Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from neighbouring vineyard. The characteristically cool climate of the district ensures slow ripening of the grapes, which also allows for the development of rich flavour and quality grape juice. Grown on ancient gravely loams, Galafrey harvest their grapes from mid-March to late April depending on the season
 
VINTAGE COMMENTS
To sum up Vintage 2019 was a difficult but solid vintage with some varieties experiencing a decline in volume of up to 30-60% and other varieties battle extreme weather conditions. Despite conditions wines look solid with standout varieties of Muller Blend and whole bunch Shiraz.
 
WINEMAKING
The dry, cool to mild climate of the Great Southern region will produce classic Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, wines with great depth of flavour and structure. We endeavour through meticulous fruit selection and wine production sympathetic to the vintage conditions to produce a classic well-made wine. Fruit is mechanically harvested ripe and brought into the winery under cool conditions. Pressed into tank and keep on skins for 10 days to allow for the best extractions of flavour and colour. Merlot has 20% whole bunch. Once finished fermentation small French oak integration and finished minimal filtration is given to allow the wine to be at full flavour and expression before bottling.
