25 Sep Four Season’s in One Day!
We’ve had a bit of a rough start to the season, with a very heavy late-season frost recorded 2 weeks ago, just as our tender shoots and buds are emerging in the vineyard. It’s only now we are seeing the damage of sadly stunted and burnt-off normal growth. It will affect our yields, but we’re not really sure how much just yet. Time will tell!
In other news – we’d like to say thanks to the Queen for our upcoming long weekend (in WA) and we hope you can make the most of it. Are you heading south? I’d recommend it, but do remember to pack your bathers and your long johns, because we regularly experience, as Crowded House famously sung, “four seasons in one day”. It’s the maxim we live by! We are open 7 days 11-5, so please pop in!
It’s Malbec Time!
We’ve been noticing in the cellar door that the 2016 Malbec is the hit at the moment, so we thought it might be time to make it wine of the week. It’s rich, dark and earthy and well worth cellaring for a few years if you can hide it away. It was 3 years in the making; handpicked bunches of pristine fruit from our Denmark vines, 30 months in premium tight-grain French oak, and bottled using minimal filtration. I love it with a mature cheese or anything barbecued!
We have 2 special offers:
- Grab our ever popular SPECIAL MIXED CASE for $290 and get a Malbec upgrade! That’s 4 x Classic White, 4 x Shiraz, 3 x Cabernet blend, 1 x Malbec! – that’s $100 OFF RRP! Be quick as offer ends 7th October!
- Buy a 6 pack of 2016 MALBEC and get $60 OFF – that’s just $300 for 6! USE CODE: SIXTY OFF in the shopping cart.
NB The Malbec label, designed by Mel’s talented sister, Tracy Graffin, features a Rob Frith photo taken whilst Dave canoed him through our wetlands, which is a tributary of the Kent River. We are so proud of our wetlands area, teeming with birdlife, nesting spoonbills, long-neck turtles, swamp hens and all manner of wrens, and croaking frogs. It’s a testimony to our ecological approach to growing grapes and managing our property. You’ll see that is also a constant source of inspiration for Melissa’s art!
Please let us know if we can help you with anything … We hope you have a great week, whatever you are doing!
