Deep bright ruby, with a fragrant, complex bouquet. Mouth filling and sweet-fruited, with rich, beautifully ripe flavours, a hint of liquorice, and a savoury, silken finish. Already delicious, ageing potential 7-10 years.

  • It was a cool start to the season with occasional frosts, two brief hailstorms
    in October, and a higher amount of rainfall during December. We also
    experienced more cloud cover than normal, the severe bushfires in Australia
    may have contributed to this. By the end of January, we were experiencing
    more settled weather. Veraison was early February and our grape harvest
    began early March. With the added pressure of Covid-19, we were happy to
    have the weather on our side. It is certainly a harvest to remember and we will
    be rewarded with a vintage of high-quality wine.
  • This single ferment named “Charlee Bubs” has been selected as it best expresses
    the Bendigo Estate vineyard and the growing season. Hand harvested on the 1st
    of April from block 4. Cold soaked for 5 days before indigenous yeast fermentation
    kicked in. Gentle hand plunging throughout ferment, followed by post fermentation
    maceration of 6 days to ensure optimum fruit and tannin balance.
    Total time on skin: 22 days. Drained directly into selected French oak barriques
    (16 % new, 33 % 2 year old, 51 % 3 years old) where the wine aged for 13 months
    during which natural malolactic fermentation occurred.
  • pH: 3.51, TA: 5.8g/l, Alc: 14%
    Bottling Date: 7th Sept 2021
    Ageing Potential: 7 – 10 years
