Harvest Date April 2015

Vintage The 2015 growing season showed great promise from the beginning, with mild temperatures and good Spring rain, with dry conditions around flowering.  As the season progressed, the good weather continued.  Summer was relatively mild, and was dotted with welcome, but low level, rain events.  Despite the mild weather, and the normal cropping loads, vintage once again kicked off early, commencing on the 11th February.

February was dotted with a few showers, leading into a bone dry March.  With the early onset of the vintage, these favourable weather conditions allowed white, red and fortified varieties to develop fully and deliver the desired flavours at harvest. 

Generally speaking, vintage 2015 has been a very good one.  The fortified wine quality is outstanding.  Muscat shows pristine and incredibly floral aromatics, with great power and depth on the palate.  Muscadelle for Topaque shows classic honey and cold tea characters, with lovely texture and weight.  Our Portuguese varieties have outstanding colour and depth of flavour, with complexity and weight, suitable for high quality port styles.  The red wines have great colour, with rich, ripe flavours and good fullness on the palate.  And the white wines offer fresh, fruit driven aromatics, with lovely natural acidity, giving length. 

Winemakers Comments Our Muscadelle grapes were crushed into an open fermenter, where they were given a cold maceration for 12 hours.  After the maceration period, the grapes were pressed and the wine was fermented on it’s full juice solids.  Fermentation occurred at temperatures of 16-18°C.  Once the desired sugar level was achieved, the wine was chilled to a temperature of -2°C to stop the fermentation and leave a sweet and luscious dessert wine. 

The wine was fined and clarified prior to bottling shortly after the stoppage of fermentation. 

Our 2015 Late Harvest Muscadelle is an intense and luscious dessert wine style with flavours of ripe apricots, vanilla bean and honey.  The palate is rich and luscious, with balanced acidity, persisting to a clean, fresh finish.
