Word from the Winemaker

The excellence of the 2019 harvest is manifesting itself more and more throughout all our varieties and it’s exciting to witness!

We are seeing beautiful bold fruit right across our white varieties, in particular the new release Sauvignon Blanc 2019 with it’s intense blossomed fruit. In December we are releasing the new 2018 Encore Chardonnay, a full barrel ferment in Classique New Doreau French Oak. Get in quick to purchase the last of the Stumpy Gully Viognier!

The Stumpy Gully estate Pinot Noir’s are displaying predominantly black cherry flavours brought on by the extended warm and sunny harvest. Beautiful silky tannins on the finish. Fantastic!

The new Stumpy Gully Sangiovese will be released on the lead up to Christmas, it’s been aged in three year old French oak hogsheads, very delicate chalky tannin – true Chianti style.

The rest of the 2018 reds are presenting our signature full black berry mouthfeel with solid yet soft tannins, these tannins are quite evident this year, more so than last vintage.

I am genuinely excited about the 2019 vintage. The depth of quality and flavour is a pleasure to see and I can’t wait to get it all in bottle for you to enjoy.
