The Gippsland is the first time we started working with a vineyard from Warrigal’, explains Downie, ‘and it’s therefore perhaps a transition wine, because I think at some point we will end up with a South Gippsland and West Gippsland wines, but until that works out, we’re blending sites’. The 2012 turns out to be a bit more punchy and juicy, accessible, and Downie agrees this is the case again ‘my Dad went straight to the Gippsland of my three 2012s, and he’s a punter so that might be an indication of how it is’.
