The 2019 vintage in Swan Valley was a near perfect one, with mild weather ensuring maximum quality. Hand-picked, fermented on skins and then enjoying maturation in new American Oak Hogsheads, this one-off wine displays wonderful regional and intense varietal characters and although drinking well now, will age beautifully in the cellar.
“The wine is a celebration of my career to share with family, friends and everyone to do with the club, including the fans.” Cale Hooker
