The fruit for this wine is selected from four premium sites across the Mt Lofty Ranges to ensure the optimum balance of power and finesse with juicy ripe fruit framed by silky soft tannins.
A variety of fruit pressing techniques were used before a mixture of inoculated and wild fermentation took place. The fruit spent 7-12 days on skins before being transferred to seasoned French oak barriques. All vineyard parcels were kept separate until blending stage, following 18 months in French oak (40% new).
The resulting Shiraz is deep red in colour, underpinned by bright purple hues.
Lifted and perfumed on the nose, this shiraz shows notes of blackberry and blood plum fruit laced with classic nuances of black pepper, spice, vanilla and cedar. Medium to full bodied and elegant with fleshy dark fruit characters, silky tannins and balanced acidity culminating in a long and rewarding finish.
