The parcels are all picked and vinified separately in open top fermenters with regular pumpovers and drain and returns to maximise the extraction of colour, flavour and tannins from the skins. The active wines are pressed off for malolactic and a term of age in a mix of French and American oaks to enhance complexity and soften the tannins. Batches are then assembled to achieve a balance of flavour, regional character and sound structure. The objective being to create a wine which can best demonstrate the captivating charm of the finest Clare Valley Shiraz.
