Viticulture

Shiraz (100%)
2021
Grampians, Victoria
2021 was another relatively mild year in terms of temperatures. Yields were back up above average, and quality was good, however, ripening was drawn out but this does give us loads of spice and a full basket of fruit flavours. Our Shiraz showing great spice, elegant tannins and firm acid drive.

Tasting Notes

Bright medium garnet.
Red and black cherries, ripe raspberry, boysenberry and a lick of baking spice.
Morello cherry, blackberries and raspberries along with a mix of cloves, cardamom and white pepper. Fine tannins and an understated length provided by a delicate acid line.

100% whole berry ferments in both small open, and large, open-top concrete fermenters. A mixture of plunging and pump-overs during an average of two weeks on skins. Natural yeasts were used and once ferment was complete, the wines were pressed to tank to settle overnight and then transferred to barrels to complete MLF. 14-month barrel maturation in French barriques, approx 30% new.

Beautiful, perfumed aromas greet from the start, cherry and dark plum with a spicy raspberry nuance. The palate is medium bodied and elegantly presented with those cherries and blackberry flavours emerging with a little sprinkle of pepper and dried herbs. The oak is well-weighted with the fine chalky tannins in support.
