Vintage information

2013 was a fine growing season, with some warm days balanced by consistently cool nights. It was a relatively dry season, so grapes ripened a touch earlier than usual. The weather leading up to harvest was mostly dry, ensuring perfectly healthy fruit.

Vinification

Hand harvested bunches were crushed, de-stemmed and fermented in small temperature controlled stainless steel fermenters, with gentle pumping over to extract colour and ripe tannins. The wine was aged in new (one third), one and two year old French oak barriques for 14 months.

Tasting Notes

The 2013 is a perfumed Shiraz with floral aromatics and touches of cherry. The palate shows bright red fruits and spice notes of dried herbs including thyme. Exciting natural tannins and a graphite-like earthiness contribute to a savoury core that underpins the great depth and complexity of this wine.
