The 2018 season was one of the earliest we’ve had. Flowering in the spring had been ahead of usual and this pattern continued, with Merlot coming into the winery in the first week of March. The fruit was perfect, ripe and with great tannins. As each year is a little different in terms of the way the varieties perform in the vineyard, we get slightly varying amounts of each grape. The 2018 Amelia is about usual for the proportion of the past few years, with around 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and Cabernet Franc mix and the remaining 8% being Petit Verdot.

This is a beauty. In that, it’s a wine of beauty, in the glass, on the table. It’s sure, it’s composed, it’s cohesive and most of all, it’s convincing. It’s a final word of a wine. It tastes of currants and bay leaves, choc and sweet herbs but rattling off flavours is beside the point. This is a wine with a good heart, a good finish and a good story to tell, all of which comes draped over a structure of classic design. - Campbell Mattison, The Wine Front, 95 Points
