Powerful and refined at the same time, this magnificent shiraz shows impressive black/purple fruit characters on the nose with nuances of cedar, violet, toasted spice and game. The palate is concentrated and fleshy, delivering layers of complex flavours and silky texture. Brilliantly composed and styled. At its best: 2022 to 2037.
Deep garnet in colour with a complex red-cherry and blackcurrant aroma, underpinned by elements of dried spice and bay-leaf. A concentrated, fleshy and well structured palate, indicative of the moderate yielding 2017 vintage. This wine will cellar well for many years to come.
Hand harvested, destemmed and crushed into small 1.5 tonne open topped fermenters. Selected fermenters also had a component of whole bunch clusters added to the destemmed berries. A pre-fermentation cold soak ensured a slow initiation to fermentation. Ferment temperatures were allowed to peak at 27oC before being cooled to 20oC for the remainder of the fermentation. Hand plunged daily allowed for a gentle extraction and helped to prolong the fermentation. After an extended period on skins the ferments were pressed to 50% new French oak hogsheads. Matured and not racked through the 22-month oak-maturation period provided for extended mouth-feel and texture. Prior to bottling, the wine was naturally clarified and bottled without filtration.
