100% Shiraz from the Barossa Valley winegrowing region of South Australia, the majority of which is from one of the vineyard's finest Barossa blocks.
A mix of hand plunged and pump over techniques in the traditional style influenced this wine. No whole bunch is undertaken for the Grains and it is finished in barrique with all the press wine included. American oak is sent to France for a 36 month European seasoning before being coopered into barriques using the immersion bending technique, it is then aged 'sur lie' to give an interpretation of the traditional Barossa style with a contemporary twist.
A wonderful expression of the traditional Barossa style. Deep in colour and sweetly, softly perfumed with excellent melding of vanillin and cedar oak aromatics and rich Barossa Shiraz fruit. Intense coffee and mocha flavours are supported by firm tannins and richness of mouthfeel that auger well for a long future.
