The old, sun drenched vineyards of Barossa can often be affected by significant droughts, restricted canopy growth, low nutrient levels and tiny yields. Fortunately, the Old Vine RunRig blocks thrive in these conditions and the quality of fruit is truly remarkable. Shiraz from Lyndoch and Greenock, Seppeltsfield and Moppa, Ebenezer and Rowland Flat, are gently de stemmed into open top wooden and concrete vats for a week of ferment on skins. After basket pressing, batches are filled to a selection of seasoned and new, French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and thirty months maturation, treated to a single racking for clarification, assembled with Viognier and bottled without fining or filtration.
Dense, saturated, inky colour. Delightful aromatics, layers of raspberry and graphite, melted tar and smoke soar from the glass, apricots and creme de cassis cloaking subtle hints of cherry and black olive. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding anise and dark chocolate, all bound by tight, grainy tannins.
