RRP: $24.00
Varietal: Shiraz 100%
Vintage: 2019

Tasting Notes: Backed by notes of charcuterie meats, dried herbs and suggestions of cracked pepper, its earthy bouquet of black and red berries, dark plums and dusty oak precedes a long, gentle palate of medium weight.
Winemaking Notes: Hand picked on 12th March. Fermented as 100% whole berries, pressed after 13 days on skins to French Oak (10% new) for natural malolactic conversion and maturation. 10 months in oak, then racked twice prior to bottling.
Viticultural Notes: Optimal conditions for flowering and fruitset in the vineyards gave well balanced yields with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest. A dry January and February followed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage, though attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balanced fruit with concentration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity. Our winemaking philosophy is to produce the best fruit possible in the vineyard and allow the wines to express the indiviuality of the vineyard and each growing seaon. The grapes for this wine were handpicked with viticultural practices based around maintaining balance in the vineyards, sustainability and responsiveness to changing environmental conditions.
