The grapes for this wine were sourced from our Cockfighter’s Ghost vineyard in the Broke sub-region of the Hunter Valley along with carefully selected parcels in Pokolbin.
The 2017 vintage will be regarded as a great Hunter Valley vintage, with ideal warm growing conditions leading up to vintage. After some spring and early summer rains, the vines were healthy and had plenty of foliage. Very dry and hot summer conditions with temperatures over 40 degrees meant the tannin and flavour profile of the fruit was allowed to fully mature. The 2017 white and red wines will be full of flavour and highly sought after.
