The vintage, declared to be “exceptional”, follows hot on the heels of the “excellent” 2017 vintage. We experienced another warm and dry vintage in 2018 with the ongoing drought resulting in slightly lower yields, and extremely high fruit quality.
Across the Hunter most of the vineyards had relatively small berries with fantastic depth of colour and incredible intensity/concentration of fruit. The stylistic diversity between our single vineyard wines in the 2018 range is more evident than ever, providing a wonderful insight into the nuances that exist between the different soil types of the Hunter Valley.
