Crushed straight to an open fermenter, this wine spends just over a week fermenting on skins, the ideal amount of time to extract the perfect amount of grippy yet fine tannin to complement the oak programme. Aged for 12 months in 30% new French barriques, and 70% seasoned oak, the delicate oak spice is subtle and complementary, never overpowering the fruit.
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.
This classic example of McLaren Vale Shiraz calls for a classic pairing. A scotch fillet cooked over fire, and local vegetables roasted to perfection.
Drinking beautifully now but will reward the patient for the next 10-15+ years.
