(RRP $40.00)

Case: 6 bottles

Hand-picked, berry-sorted, wild and cultured yeast, open-fermented, 14 days post-ferment maceration, 12 months in new and used French oak. The introduction is the fragrant spicy berry bouquet, this taken on board by the medium-bodied palate without batting an eyelid; supple tannins flesh out the elegant finish of an attractive wine.

  • Fruit was handpicked and sorted. Fermentation was carried out in small lot fermenters. Moderate extraction was aimed for to ensure that the vineyard characters were fully expressed. Fruit was macerated for four weeks, the wine was then matured in new and one year old oak for six months.

    Varietal: 100% Shiraz
    Region: Frankland River, WA
    ABV: 13.5%

    Everything from the colour, flavour profile to the shape of this wine sings. A flourish of bright, dark cherries and plums, star anise and cinnamon, the palate flows evenly with supple yet decisive tannins, the cedary oak integrated and part of the wine's detailed structure.
