Tasting Notes: This wine opens with a little whiff of complexing spicy sulphide that quickly gives way to “cool climate” Shiraz aromas of juicy red plums, pepper and aniseed. The palate is soft and approachable and the fruits set in the red-berry spectrum. It is an accessible Shiraz that is fresh and the flavours have nice persistence.
Winemaking Notes: Harvest: Hand-picked over 14th and 15th of March
Vinification & Elevage: Vinified in both open fermenters and closed static fermenters. 30% whole bunch used during the fermentation process for added perfume and savoury influence. Matured in larger format older French oak puncheons for 10 months and during maturation the wine was racked twice.
Viticultural Notes: Optimal conditions for both flowering and fruit set 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.
