In the Swan Valley the 2018 vintage proved interesting this year, in our opinion one of the most favourable summers for a long time.
Relatively cool conditions in the Swan Valley meant even ripening for all varieties and we expect both the reds and whites to be exceptional this year.
The white wines show exceptional varietal character and shape as some of the best we have produced. We are particularly excited about the Autumn Harvest Semillon – Verdelho which looks outstanding.
Swan Malbec and Petit Verdot are also looking really good and should develop into great examples once we mature them in oak barrels.
Because the Swan was in our opinion an exceptional year we decided to pick only the top fruit from our Manjimup vineyard. Keep an eye out for the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon and Reserve Cab Malbec which should be outstanding..
