From the eminent St Andrews Block A30, Old Lands Block S50, 40 and 80, traditional 1654 clones of Shiraz. Grapes are moved a short distance to the winery where they are gently de-stemmed to retain integrity and minimise any maceration or extraction of harsh tannins. Fruit is transferred to headless barrels and inoculated with a specialist strain of Shiraz yeast. Ferments are hand plunged twice daily to aid gentle extraction before being pressed and returned to barrel for malolactic. Upon completion, the component wines are racked off lees, assembled and filled to a selection of water bent American oak barrels for eighteen months maturation prior to filtration.
Brick red colour with deep crimson heart, already showing signs of development. A brooding, savoury complex yet thoroughly enticing aroma. Mouth watering wafts of chocolate, mocha, toffee and cream intertwine with plum, aniseed and rich berry fruit, great elegance and length. The palate is a mouthful of round completeness. Fruit flavours and oak weight are in absolute balance bringing harmony, grace and a pleasurable warmth to the palate from start to finish.
