The Who:

Made from the Shiraz Clone, SH 99, manicuring the vineyard, green harvesting to limit the crop, and a winemaker that has spent some time in Côte-Rôtie, has all contributed to this single vineyard wine.

The How:

Most of the work happens in the vineyard. In the cellar a 5 day cold soak and sufficient delastages. After fermentation the wine spends another  30 days on the skins, and goes through malolactic fermentation in barrel.

The What:

A brooding Shiraz with heaps of white pepper spice, ripe plums, violets, cinnamon and a hint of liquorice on the nose. The palate is super elegant and soft with all the flavours pulling through to the palate.

The Details:

A winemaker’s selection of the six best barrels, 80% new French Oak, matured for 16 months prior to being bottled unfiltered and unfined. Enjoyment will be further enhanced by decanting 30 minutes prior to drinking, but this wine can be cellared for at least 7 to 10 years.
