Winemaking  

Carefully selected parcels of shiraz from the Blights block Byrne vineyard in Northern Clare, were picked in the evening in March, left to macerate over night and crushed early the next morning. The wine was fermented in older French barrels, and left to age in oak before bottling.  

The 2015 vintage was one of the earliest on record and as a region the Clare Valley have been rated by James Halliday as 9/10 for conditions. 

Cabernet Sauvignon performed consistently in the  region and the Byrne Clare Valley Cabernet is showing refinement and finesse.
