- This is grown on a picturesque north-east slope at Rising Vineyard in the Christmas Hills.
The low fertility of the gravel soils, altitude and generous sunshine of this area of the Yarra Valley combine to create the ideal place to grow Shiraz with a balance of restraint, generosity and complexity. The Shiraz fruit was hand-harvested and sorted into a fermenter as 100% whole-bunches. Except for a small amount crushed by foot on the bottom of the fermenter, the bunches were left entire and unbroken. The fermenter was sealed up and left for two weeks without any sort of pumping over, plunging, or other interventions.
At the completion of this period it was pressed and transferred directly to old 500L French oak puncheons to complete fermentation and then left to mature until late Spring. It was blended and bottled without filtration at the start of December 2017.
