Intense deep crimson with purple hues, this Shiraz brings a bouquet of bitter chocolate, aniseed, black pepper and luscious raspberry and blueberry aromas to the nose. On the palate, bright and generous berry and plum fruit flavours, both ripe and savoury, are set against a refreshing backbone of acidity. Soft, mouth-coating tannins add to the generous mouthfeel of the wine, which ends in a clean, dry and plum fruit finish.

Production Notes

Whole bunches were hand harvested in the third week of March, gently crushed and naturally fermented in open fermenters for eight days. The cap was hand plunged twice a day before the fruit was carefully pressed off the skins using a basket press into a mix of new and previously filled French and American oak barriques to finish fermentation. After 18 months' maturation and racking in the same oak, the wine was bottled without filtration or fining, to capture the essence of the vines.
