2016 Clare vintage high in quality and slightly higher in yields. A stress free 2015 winter allowed the vines to store extra nutrients for potentially better crops. Spring saw good rains and little frost, and advanced growing which lead to early harvest time with the right mix of vine stress without disease pressure. With just over 18 hectares, or around 43 acres, of Shiraz, our estate grown fruit shone in these conditions for a richness and concentration of flavour. Placed in older French barrels, and bottled with minimal filtration, the result is a true expression of Shiraz from the Clare Valley region.
