Bunches of Shiraz are de stemmed into a traditional two tonnes fermenter, vinified through the action of natural ambient yeasts. Batches are hand plunged up to four times daily for optimal control of temperature and extraction, maximising flavour and infusing elegant tannins. Upon completion, ferments remain on skins for a fortnight, followed by a gentle press into the luxury of the finest French oak barriques for thirty months maturation. Only a few hundred cases are made out of the best vintage years.
Deep dark red, intense purple hues. Rich concentrated forest fruit nose, spices, chocolate and cedar notes. Juicy middle palate and intense depth of fruit, layer upon layer of bramble, currants and seasoned plum, all supported by long grainy tannins and a measure of complex oak. Long, clean flavours, exquisite in its seamlessness, Shiraz of extraordinary length.
