VINEYARDSourced from a plethora of plantings across our Vineyard, individual ferments are selected to create a lighter bodied, fruit focused Shiraz. Mourvèdre from our 2011 planting, lends its herbaceous and spice-driven qualities to further add a vibrancy and lifted acid profile.
VINTAGEThe 2021 season started promisingly with good winter and early spring rainfall. The vines grew strongly throughout spring helped by rainfall that was moderate but well timed. From early December things dried out and we feared that the vines might hit a wall before harvest. Despite very dry conditions continuing into the new year we were saved by the fact that the usual run of hot weather in late January and into February didn’t eventuate. In the end fruit quality was excellent across most varieties despite yields being low. 
WINEMAKING: Destemmed and crushed to open top fermenters with small parcels added as whole bunches. Fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and concrete fermenters with 14-16 days on skins. 10 months in a combination of French Barriques, Puncheons and Demi-Muids, 10% of which were new.
