COLOUR  Dark plum with ruby hue.

NOSE  Ripe plum, violets & pepper.

PALATE  Dark berries, savoury spice, elegant tannins with a long fruit-driven finish.

WINEMAKING  Fruit was harvested when flavour, tannin and acid were all in balance. Fruit was fermented in two batches, one batch 100% whole berries, one batch 50% whole / 50% crushed. Wines were pressed off into tank, settled then transferred to French oak barrels. Careful barrel selection brought together rich fruit, firm tannins and a tight acidity to come together beautifully, producing a Shiraz of great structural integrity and one that will reward careful cellaring.

VINTAGE NOTES  2019 was a long, cool vintage. It started off with a cooler than average spring and summer and this followed through vintage. Canopy management and attention to detail were key to getting fruit ripe and avoiding disease. Yields were low across the board.
