Vintage: 2010 01/11/2012

Light, bright red. An exotic, perfumed bouquet displays raspberry, blackberry, sandalwood and lavender, plus a hint of blood orange. Racy but deep in red and dark berry flavor, showing exotic floral and spice nuances and strong minerality. Finishe... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

Located on the steep north facing slopes of the Warramate Ranges, alongside the vineyards of Yarra Yering and Coldstream Hills, the Sexton vineyard is exposed and demanding. Being well up the slopes, topsoil is thin and root systems have estbalished themselves in shallow gravelly loams above a tough rocky clay base. Vigour and bunch yields set naturally low in this environment, facilitating a low intervention approach to what is otherwise hand tended viticulture. Biodynamic vineyard management principles are being introduced with the purpose of further distinguishing the site and improving grape and wine quality.
