Winemaking Notes

Mr. Mick Tempranillo 2018

This wine has distinctive varietal characters of cherries and strawberries, subtle French oak perfume flavours with smooth tannins, a hint of spice and a long lingering finish.

Mr. Mick Cabernet Merlot 2016

The Mr Mick philosophy is well demonstrated in this classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. A harmonising partner for Cabernet, the Merlot adds middle palate texture whilst also softening Cabernet’s powerful tannin.

Mr. Mick Shiraz 2018

This full-bodied wine has aromas of lifted violet, blueberry and red fruit with nuances of creamy vanilla due to American oak maturation. The rounded palate is full of dark cherry and ripe raspberry flavours with hints of herb and spice, finishing with soft, silky tannins.

Growing Conditions

2016 Vintage

The 2016 vintage will long be acclaimed as one of the best on record. Ideal winter rains, perfect flowering conditions and timely spring rainfall without frost placed vineyards in good stead ahead of a warm temperate summer.

2018 Vintage

Lower than average rainfall throughout Winter and Spring led to limited subsoil moisture for the beginning of the growing season. Canopies however remained healthy and strong, assisted with irrigation where possible heading into the warm Summer months.

Access to water and good irrigation management was critical, however the longer warm, sunny conditions of the ripening days and the cool nights has resulted in consistent yields and excellent quality across all varieties in 2018.

Food Pairing

The winemakers suggest the following food matches:

Tempranillo  РSpanish tapas or tomato based pasta dishes.
