Jean-Nicolas Méo describes 2018 as a "hot and precocious vintage that made for very high fruit maturities. The growing season didn't have too much drama as the flowering passed very quickly which made for uniform ripening at the harvest. There was a severe attack of mildew though we came out of it largely unscathed. I chose to begin picking on the 29th of August though we did not pick in our usual order as the heat seemed to alter the typical ripening patterns so that caused us to rethink our logistics somewhat.

Yields were very good and the fruit was exceptionally clean though there was still quite a bit of sorting as I wanted to eliminate any wilted or over ripe berries. Potential alcohols were very good but I was relieved to find that we had no wines come in over 14%. By contrast the post-malo pHs were on the high side, ranging as they did between 3.6 and 3.8. The good news is that there was a reasonable amount of tartaric acid so the wines don't really seem as though the pHs are higher than normal.

As to the style of the 2018s, they remind me of the 2009s or, going back a ways, a blend of 1985 and 1989." Burghound

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes. For estimated delivery times and further information see here. If you have any additional questions, please email us on sales@wineexperience.com.au or call us on 1300 55 44 35
