Tasting Notes

Deep purple in colour. Ripe blackberry and plum fruits on the nose with floral notes. Varietal fruit-driven palate, with cherry/berry fruit and spice flavours. Soft tannins complement the fruit with mouth-filling generous finish.

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

 

Harvest commenced three weeks later than usual due to the cooler
temperatures and slower ripening. This has resulted in good parcels
of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc with lovely aromatics & flavour.
Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon have good colour with concentrated
berry flavours, vibrancy and fruit-derived characters that we strive
for in our wines.
