Tasting Notes

Outstanding Shiraz

Scored 95 points in Halliday Wine Companion 2018

Viticulture

2013 was a good growing season, which allowed the grapes to ripen early.  The vines had minimal irrigation and the crop levels were low to ensure the vines produced a balanced crop of  Shiraz grapes with intensity of flavours.

Winemaking

This wine was made as a  small batch  (10 tonne) in a open fermentor for  8 days.   It was pressed off skins into a combination of 20% new American Oak and 80%  new French Oak barrels.
This wine remained in oak for 12 months maturation, gaining the layered complexity now which will enable this wine to age gracefully and be a delicious wine for the next 10 -15 years.
