More info

Full bodied and smoothly luscious, it is ready to drink, the freshness adding lift and vibrancy to the dark fruit and liquorice richness.

Grapes were handpicked early in the morning.  Some grapes were stored overnight in the cold room before processed the next morning. Grapes were hand sorted and destemmed but not crushed.  Whole berries were cold soaked for 48 hours before inoculated.  Fermentation took about 15 days at 18 – 28 ˚ C with a carefully planned pump over schedule to ensure soft tannins.  Extended maceration was done on some Shiraz tanks.  The Mourvedre were racked of the skins at 8 balling and fermentation was finished in 500 L barrels. Malolactic on both wines were done in barrels and further oak matured for 16 months in total.
