- Cellaring potential
The 2021 growing season in the Barossa offered favourable conditions, with the summer growing season mild and even, with cool day time temperatures. Enhanced by excellent rains across winter and spring and a full moisture profile in the soil, the vineyards developed wonderful canopies and well-formed grape bunches. As a result of the long flavour development and ripening cycle in the vineyard, the 2021 vintage resulted in fruit of exceptional quality and excellent yields. Regarded as one of the most renowned vintages, wines produced from the exceptional fruit of 2021 exhibit great depth of colour, with intense, concentrated varietal fruit flavours, whilst robust reds will have firm tannins which will mellow and soften with careful cellaring.
