Only in exceptional years do we make our Family Reserve. 2017 was an exceptional year in the vineyard with winter rains, a gentle spring, lovely summer sun and a dry autumn. The grapes were tended carefully and handpicked at premium ripeness.
The Dunbabin Family Reserve - with 40% whole bunch in the pressings and longer, selected barrel time. Made from parcels of premium fruit from the oldest vines on the property, this wine is more complex, richer, and structured with the ability to age for a decade or more. Smooth and savoury with rich plum and dark cherry fruit, soft spice and earthiness, a firm personality and soft seamless silkiness in the mouth with a density of flavours.
