Low intervention winemaking techniques and careful use new and old French oak (30% new oak, 12 months) allows the fruit to be the hero. A complex wine and a true expression of the vineyard site. The delicate oak profile gives subtle aromatics of crushed vanilla seed and spice, with a beautifully balanced tannin structure.
This steep southern facing site gives this vineyard a cooler and slower ripening aspect. Shallow black soils, single cordon and low cropping levels of 2 tonne per acre, ensures the vines are well balanced. The resulting fruit has intense varietal and complex fruit flavours.
The richness of the Shiraz makes for perfect pairing with full flavoured dishes, grilled meats, bbq ribs, pizza and pasta dishes. Or you could finish the night with cheese strong flavoured cheese.
This wine has excellent balance and drinkability now. However the wine will continue to develop for a further 10-15+ years.
