We’ve just pressed off our last ferment for the vintage, and as the we sit back and reflect on John’s 48th Barossa vintage it is one that will be remembered fondly.
When asked to sum up the vintage, John reflected that:
“it is a rarity to get healthy yields like we have in 2021, and at the same time, impressive depth of colour and intensity of flavour. While not as cool as 2012 or 2017, the mild conditions around harvest made for perfect ripening. Pleasingly the wines show a vibrance and elegance expressed in the best cooler years, but not without trademark Barossa generosity. “
