Red berry . Savoury . Hint of pepper

TASTING NOTE  Generous aromas of red berries, subtle pepper, cloves and spiced vanilla. Succulent plums, bright juicy red fruits, cedar and sweet oak spice fill the palate, carried by soft tannins to a fresh raspberry acidity finish.

WINEMAKING Fruit was harvested when flavour, tannin and acid were all in balance. Fruit was fermented to retain fruit freshness and juicy flavours, natural tannins and a fresh acidity which come together to produce a Shiraz for immediate drinkability and enjoyment.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS 2020 was a warm and dry vintage, however a wetter than average winter set us up well for this. The growing season started off with a warm spring followed by a hot summer with one significant rain event late February which slowed down the reds and allowed for ripening of tannin and flavour to catch up with sugars. The warm and dry conditions reduced disease pressure plus the ample marri blossoms ensured we didn't have the bird pressure of 2019. Yields were low across the board, but on the upside this resulted in excellent quality with concentration of flavour across all varieties.
