  • Tasting Notes

    Colour
    Deep intense red with a purple hue

    Aroma
    Notes of blueberry, plum, mulberry, French lavender, pen ink, white pepper, peppered steak, and scorched earth.

    Palate
    Displaying some lovely fruit restraint, this Shiraz provides gentle notes of blueberry, mulberry, plum, and blueberry pastille, which slowly emerge with air contact. Hints of white pepper, warm granite, and French lavender add layers of complexity and intrigue. Big chewy tannins emerge through the mid-palate, creating a very muscular structure that runs the length of the palate suggesting a very long future ahead. Notes of black tea, saddle oil, and peppered steak penetrate the late-palate.

  • Wine Making

    Crushed into and fermented in three to ten tonne open top fermenters with regular pump overs (2-3 daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. Following an average of 12 days of maceration, the free run was drained to tank and the skins pressed to the same tank. After 24 hours the wine was racked to barrel, where malolactic fermentation took place. Minimal fining and filtration is used.

    Maturation
    Aged for 18 months in 9% new French oak hogsheads and puncheons with the remainder in 2-7 year old American and French oak.

    Cellar Potential
    Up to 15 years
