2019 Shiraz

Wild fermented and includes 30% whole bunches, then spends 15 months in 1-5yr old oak. Purple red, theres plenty of white pepper, then a middle that is surprisingly full, the oak driving the flavours forward, but with rich a palate that is still mid weight and driven by fine, real tannins. Such a composed wine, the acidity, keeping things taut and the finish detailed and composed, even though the best is yet to come.

Winemaker Notes

The inclusion of 30% whole bunches, 3% Viognier and wild yeast fermentation, bring added layers to the wine. 12 months maturation in French oak provides a fine savoury edge in harmony with the concentrated vibrant red and blue berry fruit notes from the vineyard.
