Tasting Notes

the nose. Flavours of sweet berry fruit following through from the nose with

mint notes. Rich texture with big velvety tannins.

Winemaking Report

Our Shiraz is fermented in static fermenters at controlled temperatures to

retain the varietal aromatics. Once complete the wine is left for 7–10 days on

skins to aide in the extraction of soft fleshy tannins and build wine structure.

French & American oak has been used sparingly to ensure maximum fruit

expression is retained in the final wine.

Vintage Conditions

It started out full bore with the usual warm February weather. All our grape

varieties started to ripen at the same time making it one of our most compact

vintages to date. Vine-balance was carefully monitored, resulting in fruit that

demonstrate the vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our

wines.
