FRUIT  This Shiraz was hand selected at vintage from our estate vineyards in South Australia. The parcels were kept to one side, crushed and fermented separately in order to retain the quality seen on the vine. The 2019 Riverland vintage endured hot, dry conditions of over 35 for 48 days resulting in lower than average yields with minimal disease risk. Producing outstanding quality for reds, the particularly dry growing season did see some yields lower than normal.

WINEMAKING  The richness of the fruit in its natural state meant that minimal intervention was required in the winery. Kept separate these parcels were left on skins for some time in order to develop the keen tannin structure, then fermented in stainless steel with the influence of French oak for complexity.

COLOUR  Deep ruby red with purple hue.

AROMA  Wild mixed aromas of blue and black berries, with creamy vanillin French oak.

PALATE   This is our classic South Australian Shiraz: deeply coloured and richly flavoured with blueberry fruits, supported by spices of white pepper, vanilla and cinnamon. Smooth and rich it can be enjoyed on its own or with pan seared fillet mignon and aged hard cheese like Gouda.
