Vintage Notes

2017 was one of the latest vintages on record despite being warm at 1585C days versus the average of 1487C days. The Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested on the 18th of April and the Shiraz on the 19th of April.

The harvest was delayed by 2 to 3 weeks because of the exceptionally wet winter and the cool spring that combined to delay bud burst. Harvested in the cool dry conditions of mid-autumn, the fruit achieved deep colour and intense flavour while preserving finesse and freshness.

The two aphorisms that apply to 2017 are that “the best wines are made in cool areas in warmer than average vintages” and that “the best wines are made from regions and varieties where the harvest is in mid-Autumn.” 

2017 is a wonderful vintage from the unique Whalebone Vineyard terroir.
