Vines at Section A8 of Dixons Creek are strategically planted in a north to south row orientation. All grapes are hand picked throughout the cool of morning into 8kg buckets and transported to the estate wineworks. Fruit is hand sorted as a combination of whole bunches and whole berries are gravity tipped into open fermenters. Fruit is vinified through the action of wild indigenous yeasts, while treated to a regimen of foot plunging and hand remontage to gently extract colour and flavour. After three weeks of maceration and ferment, musts are pressed and settled before gravity filling to a combination of 500L oak puncheons and larger format 2300L casks for malolactic and a year's maturation.
Medium garnet red colour. Fragrant and aromatic, brightly detailed, perfumed characters, wild strawberries and graphite, minerals and cherry spice. A fine, plump and structured palate, brimming with dark berry flavours, smokeyness and pepper spice, supported by a whisper of seasoned oak and textural, grainy tannins. The Syrah of choice to accompany piquant fennel pork sausages with lentils and maghrebi spice.
