methodGood winter and spring rains prevailed followed by a warm, dry summer The shiraz had a good fruit set with smaller than average bunches and low yields of 4 tonnes /hectare (via deficit irrigation) which produced great colour, flavours and acid. The Shiraz (1654 clone) fruit was selected from prime 3 ha block comprising free draining, rocky clay loam over limestone soils. The vineyard was planted in 1998 and is managed sustainably using organic practices. The single cordon vines are hand pruned and thinned.The single cordon vines are hand pruned and thinned.
Picked in early March, hand-sorted and lightly crushed into 1.5T open fermenters. A warm primary fermentation was undertaken with regular hand-plunging and two weeks post-maceration. A gentle basket pressing and 24 months maturation in seasoned French hogsheads ensued. The wine was left on lees to support a natural Malolactic fermentation. After 2 years barrel maturation, the wine was transferred to stainless steel tank for storage. The wine was bottled in January 2022. No fining and minimal filtration was used.
