Grapes are harvested from small family operated vineyards, some are in Victoria's high country, covered in snow during winter and shrouded by cloud at other times of year. Further harvests of Shiraz from slightly warmer climes contribute complexity. Fruit is inoculated in a combination of large static and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of vinification and an average of three to five days post ferment maceration have extracted soft fleshy tannins and formed a solid palate structure. Maturation in a combination of prior use American and French oak barriques has integrated the wine and softened the tannins, achieving a generous Shiraz style.
Deep crimson in colour. Brooding aromas of plum and dark berry fruits with a hint of cedar and star anise. The palate is expressive of its cool climate origins, rich yet elegantly structured with generous dark chocolate, blackberry and spice flavours on the palate, finishing with soft tannins.
