Taken from the first vineyard planted by Maurice O’Shea, the Old Paddock is a perfect site for Shiraz. Sheltered from the afternoon sun and winds, the rows run North to South and produce exceptional fruit from over 100-year-old vines. The fruit was handpicked and delivered to the winery before destemming into small open top fermenters. A short cold soak followed by a 9 day fermentation before pressing to nearly 20 % new large format French Oak. The wine was then transferred to tank before bottling.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
