2015 A "challenging" vintage with some January rain producing more elegantly styled shiraz Screwcap 2025+
2014 Perfect conditions resulting in a 'once or twice' in a generation red wines. Arguably the best vintage since 1965 screwcap 2030+
2013 Good spring rain, a relatively warm summer with a couple of late vintage downpours. An exceptional vintage for semillon, and very good shiraz screwcap 2025
2012 Very cool growing season with some relatively challenging summer rainfall. A difficult ripening year, particularly for shiraz NOT MADE
2011 Awesome. The Hunter largely missed the unstable weather that hampered the rest of Australia. Relatively ripe semillon and beautifully structured shiraz. screwcap 2022+
2010 Warm dry conditions led to a low cropping, early ripening vintage. Earlier drinking semillon and nicely balanced shiraz. screwcap 2020
2009 Above average spring rainfall led to higher yields. Riper semillon year and perfectly structured, long living shiraz. screwcap 2020+
2008 Cool ripening season combined with above average rainfall made for a challenging vintage, producing realtively lean semillon. Disastrous for shiraz. NOT MADE
2007 Generally warm and dry conditions prevailed. Low yielding vintage. Fine semillon and relatively ripe shiraz screwcap 2017
2006 Relatively warm and dry, leading to a great classically styled vintage for both semillon and shiraz screwcap 2014
