Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages.

The Schrapel property is hand pruned to seventy buds per vine, traditional viticulture limits the yield to 6.25t/hectare. The healthy old vines sprout a superb harvest and there is very low incidence of disease. Fruit is crushed and de stemmed on skins in open top fermenters for eight days at 15C to 18C. Ferments are racked and pumped over skin caps for optimal colour and tannin extraction. Upon completion, batches are pressed and left to settle for malolactic, followed by transfer to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extravagant twenty two months maturation, enhancing the sublime old vineyard fruit character and building fine palate structure.
Deep garnet, almost black colour. Aromas of ripe berries leap from the glass, followed by the rich, ripe blackberry and plum fragrances of Barossa Shiraz. A generous palae of mellow fruit flavours, showing excellent acid balance and restrained, supportive tannins. A finish that's full of Barossa chocolate plum fruit characters, gritty fruit tannins and crispy cherry acidity, silky soft, lingering and long.
