The lower cropping and limited harvest of these stately old vines translates into a Shiraz of opulence and remarkable balance. All individual pickings of fruit are separately crushed and vinified. Juices reach 28C at the onset of ferments before being cooled to 22C for a week. Batches are pumped over thrice daily before a gentle press and transfer to a selection of new and seasoned American oak barrels and French hogsheads for completion of ferments and twenty months maturation.
Deep, dark red with purple hues. Nose of dark chocolate, licorice and lifted raspberry fruit over hints of lavender. The palate is full of intense red berry fruits, ripe blackberries and rhubarb infused by lifted spice and rich vanilla, milk chocolate notes. Beautifully weighted with optimal balance between ripe, concentrated fruit flavours, sweet spices, tannins and acidity. A silky, well rounded fleshy fruit style, to partner with oven braises or mature cheddar.
