SECRET BLOCK

SHIRAZ - WINE CLUB ONLY

A secret and very special block was sourced in Moppa Hills, Barossa Valley to create our beautiful Secret Block Shiraz.


BRAVE FACES

BRAVE FACES

GRENACHE MATARO SHIRAZ $27

Bouyant raspberry, red cherry characters with a restrained savoury palate, grainy tannins backed by integrated oak. A serious food wine that shows what a wonderful marriage these three varietals make if blended with balance in mind.

Tasting notes

Colour

Black core, magenta rim

Aroma

Lifted red fruits and refreshing menthol balanced by generous cloves and other spice notes

Palate

As usual, the cool climate nose is contradicted with the warmer climate palate: more dark fruits, chocolate and spice, but still the subtle menthol adds freshness and length finishing with fine tannins.

Winemaking

Crushed into and fermented in five tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs; three daily during peak fermentation to extract colour, flavour and tannin. Following 14 days of maceration, the dry free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed to the same tank. 24 hours later the wine was then racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and unfiltered.
