2019 Holy Grail Shiraz
The Holy Grail Shiraz comes from our Estate Single Vineyard in the sub-region of Seppeltsfield, in the Barossa Valley.
The first part of this site was purchased in 2008 and included 52 acres of vacant land. The vision was to wait until resources permitted and plant this Ares of land as specifically as possible. Just before the 2015 vintage a further 37 acres of land were purchased, which included 16 acres of established Shiraz vines. This vineyard produced 27 tonnes in its first vintage, with fruit going into My Hands, Ares, Single Vineyard and a few barrels to Bella’s garden.
VINE AGE: 17 years
AVERAGE RAINFALL: 450-500mm
SOIL TYPE: Predominantly rich red/brown clay.
