Vintage conditions

2016 Vintage

Rainfall was significantly below the long-term average for the entire growing season, while above average temperatures prevailed. Budburst, flowering, veraison and harvest were all earlier than expected of Coonawarra. The time between budburst and flowering was the fastest on record at 58 days. December was especially warm with nine days recorded over 35°C. By contrast January and February were much milder, delivering an extended ripening period that was ideal for high quality cabernet sauvignon.

The Bin 169 Story

In 2008, we decided to add a contemporary regional stablemate to the collection, a partner to the revered multi-regional Bin 707. Sourced from some of the same revered blocks as Max Schubert’s original 1973 Bin 169 Coonawarra Claret. A contemporary alternative to Bin 707 with a strong regional imprint. A sibling to RWT and a twin to Bin 150. This gorgeously scented and richly concentrated wine is steeped in the origins of our modern winemaking traditions. It was not made in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017.
