‘2018 is an exceptional representation of this wine showing depth and power with restraint. This wine can be enjoyed young but will also cover many decades. The 2018 Filsell exemplifies what the Barossa Valley does so well’. Craig Stansborough, Chief Winemaker.

MATURATION

Post fermentation the wine was matured for eighteen months in a combination of hogsheads and puncheons. 35% was matured in new oak, both French and American. The balance was matured in a combination of one, two and three year-old French oak.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The 2018 harvest was dry but produced great quality thanks to the retention of water in the soils from the rainy months leading up to vintage. The dry, warm conditions were welcomed creating low disease pressure. These warm, dry conditions coupled with cool night-time temperatures produced fruit with exceptional flavour that were harvested at lower degrees of sugar ripeness creating a wine that is vibrant and balanced.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Fermented in stainless-steel and concrete open fermenters with header boards. Temperatures were allowed to reach 28°C. Minimal pump overs were performed on the concrete open fermenters while pump overs on the stainless steel fermenters were performed four times-a-day, with reduced pump overs towards the end of fermentation. Gentle pressing was performed by a combination of basket and bag press.
