Made traditionally via their family old ways of wine making at their original farm house located high up in the Barossa Hills hamlet of Mount McKenzie by producing wines of finesse, complexity and brightness. Their styling is all about unearthing its beauty of the vintage, unearthing its personality.
Medium to full bodied. A very juicy, easy drinking expression of Barossa Shiraz. Violets, spice, red berries, black cherries and a mix of dark fruits. The wine is a juicier, fruit forward style with plenty of flavour. Fine tannins and a long, smooth finish wrap up an excellent value wine.
Adelaide Hills (Birdwood)
Aromatic stone fruits, pineapple and white blossom flowers, supported by subtle underlying tannin from the French oak. Fine creamy texture with fresh cut pineapple, and white peach with excellent roundness from extended lees contact while finishing beautifully balanced with pure acid and a savoury palate of deliciousness.

Good winter & spring rainfalls, with good soil moistures for the growing season ahead. Site showed healthy canopy heading into summer. January and February were warm & dry leading into April harvest to produce a beautifully complex & flavoured shiraz.
In the garage the shiraz fruit was gently destemmed including 25% whole bunch into open top milk vats and fermented warm naturally and basket pressed to barrel to complete ferment. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. Expect all that this label represents; wine enjoyment!
Excellent winter rains and good fruit set was a good sign for a healthy vintage. Summer was mild to warm with a couple of rain events during January & February helped freshen things up leading into April harvest.
Made via 20% whole bunch wild yeast ferment in small open top fermenters, soft pump overs, basket pressed to barrel to complete ferment and bottled unfiltered
