The sites are traditionally grown and low cropped, they produce the requisite flavours and tannins for this style of wine. After a course of traditional vinification, Ned and Henry are pressed into quality French oak barriques for the completion of primary ferments and a term of malolactic. The wine matures in these barrels for a year or more before racking. While the base wine has always been Shiraz, each year a small proportion of Mourvedre is included, which accentuates the palate and delivers the complexity which is Ned & Henry.
