95 Points - James Halliday The vineyard, in Yarra Glen, slopes east and is protected from the afternoon sun. It's a blend of MV6 and 115 clones, wild-fermented and matured in French oak (27% new) for 12 months. It's a supremely elegant wine, with a full suite of red fruit/pomegranate flavours and silky tannins. Pure joy. It may be a while before we have another vintage as good as '17.
Winemaker "The Upper Nygumby vineyard is near Yarra Glen. These older MV6 vines coupled with the 115 clone have produced a wine of elegant weight and subtle florals. The savoury cherries and wild herbs blend well and are supported by fine oak and acid length."
