The Grampians are notorious for drought conditions which take a very firm grip on the vines, giving them a shakedown of any water they might have and concentrating the flavours. Many of the vines are grown to higher altitudes, cold air tumbles down the mountains and chills the fruit throughout the ripening. Harvests of Shiraz exhibiting strong spice and pepper characters are set aside for Billi Billi. Grapes are treated to a cold soak on skins for a fortnight, inoculated to yeast strains Maurivin B and 796 for eight days vinification in traditional open top fermenters, hand plunged and transferred to a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barriques for a year's maturation. Alcohol 14.2%
Deep, dense purple. Blackberry and dark cherry fruits, layered with oriental spice and complex cool climate characters. Palate shows rich plum and dark berry fruit characters alongside some spicy complexity. Terrific depth of flavours are all supported by fine tannins, for a medium bodied Shiraz wine with good length of palate. Smooth from top to bottom, Billi Billi aims to please with generosity of flavour, fine textures and silky mouthfeel.
