5 % of the fruit was tipped into a concrete open fermenter with the balance destemmed and lightly crushed (rollers open) on top of the whole and was seeded using a neutral yeast. Temperatures were allowed to reach 28C with header boards allowing gentle extraction. After 10 days on skins the fruit was basket pressed and transferred into 42% new French oak (1 x 720lt ) with balance into 1-4 year old French oak puncheons to undergo malo-lactic fermentation. After malo-lactic fermentation SO2 was added to the barrels, the wine was then left on light lees to mature for 8 months before racking. The wine was then transferred back to the same oak and matured for another 9 months. No fining used.

Vibrant colour, lifted fruit aromas of cherry and blackberry, subtle oak notes of vanilla and sweet spice add to this inviting nose. A medium to full bodied textured palate with supple tannins. This elegant and complex Barossa Shiraz shows the flavour and balance that these incredibly old vines give. We are confident this wine will age gracefully over the next 20-30 years.

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!
