Description

  • Vibrant dark fruit
  • Subtle spice
  • French oak
  • Medium bodied

A lush, medium bodied Shiraz with vibrant fruit flavour and spice notes. The 2017 vintage was very cool, making this wine particularly fragrant as a result. Flavours are intense, with a striking natural acidity. Enjoy now or with careful cellaring for up to 15 years from vintage date.

There was record rainfall throughout the growing season but importantly it reduced to average in November during flowering and was dry during March, the later part of ripening. Record low temperatures were also recorded resulting in a late, very cool vintage. Grapes were sourced from low yielding vines predominantly at Balhannah in central Adelaide Hills, and from Echunga and Macclesfield to the south.

Hand picked and fermented as a combination of whole berries and whole bunches in open fermenters, with gentle plunging and minimal working. Aged in French oak for fourteen months, of which one third was new.
