The Musician is made as a light and elegant dry red. Fermentation was in both stainless steel tanks and oak barrels then aged for a further six months for minimal oak contact. It was then blended and bottled as a young red to retain freshness.

April to July 2014 provided an excellent start with average winter rainfall which set us up for an even budburst with good soil moisture. Spring however was not typical, being very dry and one of Coonawarra's warmest, with temperatures well above average advancing flowering in November by about 2 weeks. Fortunately the warm and dry flowering promoted a fast and even berry set, similar to other excellent seasons, for example: 2001, 2004 and 2010.

This warm flowering provided even maturity at harvest with no green berries. Very dry conditions continued through December consequently berries remained small with thick skins. Ripening was set up perfectly with the vines receiving a refreshing drink of 90mm of rain in mid - January. Coonawarra's summer, in contrast to the spring, has been a classic, with warm days and cool nights, strongly influenced by the January upwelling of the deep, cold costal waters.... around 5 degrees cooler than those off Adelaide. Based on the mild summer, and consequently long ripening period, we are seeing bright fruit, varietal definition and intense colour at moderate sugar.

70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz. The Musician is made to enjoy now or cellar for up to 5 years. Winery Notes

"Pure fruit flavour. It lays it on. It’s delicious. Blackcurrant and redcurrant, a spray of dried herbs, a slip of saucy vanilla, a gentle run of dusty tannin. The fruit purity here is glorious. It’s hugely drinkable as a result. Fresh as a daisy too."

"This is 100% all about drinkability and pleasure - and vice versa. It is brimming with red, purple, blue and black fruits - it's all in the eye of the beholder, and the type isn't important, or as important as it would be with more expensive single varietal wines. A classic all on its own.”
James Halliday - Wine Companion - October 2016
