Wine Description

Deep garnet in colour with a lifted array of black-cherries, plums and red-licorice aromas. A rich, powerful and well structured palate, displaying flesh and appealing textured tannins. The 2018 harvest was an exceptional Barossa vintage for old vine Shiraz, suggesting that this wine will mature well for many years to come.

Winemaking

Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenters. The fruit was chilled for 5 days before being allowed to naturally warm to start fermentation. To highlight the unique vineyard charcateristics a range of hand plunging cap management techniques were used across the different vineyard parcels. Post-pressing, the wines were transferred to a combination of new (50%) and seasoned French oak hogsheads. Matured for 18 months in oak without racking, the wines were then carefully blended, naturally clarified and bottled without filtration.
