Wine Description

Deep in colour with a rich and lifted bouquet of wild berry fruits complimented with dried herb nuances. On the palate layers of ripe red fruits and wild berry characters marry seamlessly with subtle dried herb and spicy notes. Silky tannins persist the length of the palate.

Winemaking

This wine is a blend of individual Shiraz parcels made from unique sites throughout the Barossa. The blend of cooler climate Eden Valley Shiraz (39%) and warmer climate Barossa Valley Shiraz (61%), combine beautifully to enhance the palate structure and aromatics.

A variety of fermentation techniques were utilised all involving extended skin contact and daily plunging, which gently extracted tannin and built structure. To add complexity some batch components utilised indigenous yeast while others involved varying levels of whole-bunch fermentation. The ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, predominantly French, for uninhibited maturation. After a maturation of 18 months the wine was blended, naturally clarified and bottled without finings.
