The vineyard is dry grown and yields are deliberately kept low, achieving harvests of true intensity and concentration of flavour. Shiraz is picked throughout the cool of night to preserve character and complexity. Grapes are crushed and cold soaked for a day in small open fermenters, inoculated, vinified over the course of a week and hand plunged twice daily. Batches are transferred to a mix of French and American oak barrels for completion of ferments and a term of maturation. Only the finest are selected for inclusion into The Stocks. Alcohol 15.5%
