Winery & Vintage Info

2023 was a cool and late vintage, fortunately with enough sunny days to develop ripe, intense flavours. The 2023 Dagger is again made up of four clones – MV6,777,114 and 115 from vineyards at Gumeracha and Lobethal. More clones equals more complexity.

Harvested in the cool of night and early morning, pristine de-stemmed fruit is tipped directly into fermenters without crushing to give a high percentage of whole berries. The fermenters are gently pumped over twice a day to keep the skins wet and promote gentle tannin extraction. After pressing the wine is kept in stainless steel tanks prior to blending to preserve freshness and vibrancy.
