The 2011 Vintage

The 2011 Mount Terrible Vintage has been in barrel for nearly 15 months, and it is now starting to reveal the wine it will become.

The season was a difficult one for most of us in the Eastern states, with cool wet conditions right through to picking, which in the Jamieson Valley was three weeks later than normal.

The resulting wine reflects this: it is paler and lacks the intensity of the 2010, but has an exquisite, ethereal nose, with the delicate fruit that was a characteristic of the 2006 vintage, and the lingering tannins we expect from our oak regimen.

The wine will be racked once more before bottling, which it is anticipated will take place in late Spring for a probable release early in 2014.
