VINTAGE
A classic vintage from the Barossa with plenty of warmth throughout Summer after a dry Spring. Vintage started early and finished early with all varietals ripening easily and developing great flavour across the vineyards.
WINEMAKING
Each varietal was firstly picked separately and fermented in small open static fermenters with twice daily manual pumpovers. The Shiraz was fermented using a proportion of whole bunch to give some additional texture and flavour. After fermentation, the wines were matured in a combination of old and new French oak hogsheads for 15 months. Minimal filtration and fining prior to bottling.
TASTING NOTES
Mid-deep red. Lifted red fruits with a touch of whole bunch complexity. Cherry and raspberry on the palate with savoury undertones. Long silky tannins and elegant finish.
