The mean gravelly soils and invigorating climes of Mount Barker of the Australian southwest, were identified during the 1960s by the world's leading viticulturalists, as a place uncannily similar to the great terroirs and clime of Bordeaux. The pioneering vines of Forest Hill were the first ever planted here, sired from rootstock of ancient Houghton clones, inaugurally vintaged by the illustrious Jack Mann in 1972. The Cabernet and Riesling of Forest Hill were promptly distinguished by multiple trophy victories and praised by gentleman James Halliday as the most remarkable wines to come out of the Australian west.

Shiraz Strathbogie Victoria
An exclusively Strathbogie Ranges Shiraz, most of the grapes come from Rocky Hill Block at Whitegate, with a further component from Block 6 at Upton Run. The magic of this wine evolves while ageing in a collection of very old, large English oak casks. These barrels are home to a hundred years of bugs and bacteria which impart complexity, allowing the wine to breath, integrating fruit and taming the tannins. A beguiling wine of striking colour and elevated aromas, pristine fruit and a persistent, flavourful finish which conjures up images of wilderness and game.

Shiraz is inoculated to various yeast strains and vinified at 23°C under swept arm fermenters, which tend to develop vibrant perfumes and gripping tannins in the finished wine. A number of ferments create a shallow cap for good extractions. AWRI796 is a neutral yeast which permits the grape and terroir to express itself. Enoferm Syrah is a high glycerol producer which contributes mouthfeel while enhancing the bouquet, contributing violets and black pepper. Upon completion, the majority of components spend time in large, well seasoned 5000 Litres English oak casks. The balance is treated to maturation in a selection of seasoned and new, French oak hogsheads and puncheons.
Deep red, youthful, purple at the rim. A well perfumed wine with highly aromatic nose exhibiting violets, pepper and spice. Restrained chocolate oak behind a complexity of dried fruit characters. Rich, dark fruit flavours on the full bodied palate, concentrated and offering very good length.
