Ready to start showing the wines around, starting with the 2014 Tumbarumba Gamay Ancestral sparkling wine. The 2013 Canberra Sagrantino will go to bottle after vintage, with a bit of bottle-ageing before release.
The 2015 vintage has been excellent. While we wait on the grafted Fiano vines out at Hilltops to get bearing, a parcel of Riverland Fiano from Ricca Terra Farms was available, so there is a 2015 Fiano in tank. The ancestral sparkler for 2015 has been made from Canberra Savagnin grapes grown at Quarry Hill. There will be a Canberra Sagrantino from 2015 as well – ripe, spicy, tannic and acid-bright fruit picked 22nd of March.
