in the vineyard :  The 2011 growing season will be remembered for its erratic weather changes, which posed several challenges to winemakers and viticulturists alike. A cold, but late 2010 winter preceded the growing season, providing much-needed rest to the vineyards. The harvest was characterized by a warm summer and, along with the lower than average rainfall, resulted in lower yield, smaller bunches and consequently riper flavours. Grape quality in general was superb, with the season delivering optimally ripe and healthy grapes with great concentration.

in the cellar : Blending components
50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz, 11% Merlot, 9% other.

Maturation
The wine had 12 months of oak maturation in mostly French oak, with American Oak being utilized for a small percentage of the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon components
