Vineyards

Grapes are from an old vine vineyard in the Barossa with vines over a hundred years old, many on original rootstock.

Vinification

In the last two weeks of March whole bunches of Shiraz were hand harvested, then gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for eight days, hand plunged twice a day, before careful basket pressing into some new but predominantly older French Oak Barriques to finish fermentation. After 18 months maturation and a racking in the same oak, the wine was bottled without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vines.

Tasting Notes

Intense crimson with youthful purple hues. Lifted blue fruits, plum, macerated blackberries and Christmas pudding-like spice flow out of the glass with spicy pepper, and hints of bramble and dark cocoa. The palate is generous with mouth filling sweet blackberry, raspberry and plums and lashings of sweet spice. Firm but fine tannins and dark chocolaty nuances continue throughout the lengthy palate with youthful finish
