This Shiraz is a brick red colour with purple hues and displays an intense nose of blackberry and blackcurrant fruits, mocha and star anise with hints of cedary. It’s a medium to full-bodied wine with rich fruitcake and mulberry flabours overlying soft tannins and structural acidity, which will stand the wine in good stead for years to come.

This wine was made predominantly from fruit we know very well – the Shiraz grown at our own vineyard at White Hut, just outside the Clare township. The vines here grow in a mosaic of soil types which are generally quite bony, yielding fruit with incredible power and intensity. This is supplemented with fruit from neighbouring vineyards and from our vineyard at Leasingham, at the southern end of the valley which has a cooler aspect and contributes elegance and spice. 

This Shiraz was handled in small batches and hand-plunged in open fermenters, for gentle extraction of colour and flavour while maintaining a soft, supple mouthfeel. This approach helps the ferment breath and allows us to keep a very close eye on the development of the wine through fermentation to ensure that it’s not over-extracted. It’s a hallmark of a truly handcrafted boutique wine. After fermentation, the wine was barrel-matured in quality French oak, in a combination of hogsheads and puncheons for approximately 18 months.
