“Old Block, as we affectionately call it, is one of our original 1978 plantings and has been organically farmed for many years. It produces the finest, most elegant tannins of all our vineyards, creating a perfect reflection of our region and its distinct personality.”
STEVE JAMES, HEAD OF VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING

Vineyard Notes
A near-perfect growing season with a warm, dry spring and relatively light winds. Summer was nice and warm without excessive heat until a 80mm downpour mid-January; a timely watering for the reds, followed by some cooler weather. Fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested during perfect autumnal conditions, with excellent concentration and structure.
