A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision.

Making outstanding Shiraz has been somewhat of a specialty at Balgownie ever since vines were established. The winemaking team's commitment to sustainable vineyard management practices, limited irrigation, compost and mulching regimens continue to yield harvest of the healthiest, small but intensely flavoured grapes. Batches of Shiraz are treated to a term of maceration for the extraction of colour, tannins and flavour. A controlled vinfication is followed by twelve months maturation in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels before assembling into the final wine, to be initiated for secondary fermentation in bottle in the manner of Methode traditionelle.
