A dry and mild climate combines with ancient red soils to produce an effort of telling regionality. Five separate blocks of Shiraz are handled as fourteen individual parcels. Following a course of traditional open top fermentations, the finished wine is treated to malolactic and seventeen months ageing in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques. The most exceptional barrels are earmarked and only the best are included into the final wine.
