Stocked in temperature controlled warehouse
A single-block Shiraz from 46-year-old vines with a south-eastern exposure at an altitude of 108m. Soils are dark-grey, slaty siltstone thinly laminated with ironstone. Hand harvested on 4th March at yields of 3 tonnes/hectare. The fruit underwent spontaneous fermentation with 22% whole clusters included, and the juice spent 11 days on skins. It was settled over 8 days. It was then moved to second- and third- use French oak puncheons for malolactic conversion and 20 months' maturation. It was racked twice before being bottled without filtration on 11th December 2019. Alcohol 13.5%; pH 3.61; total acidity 6.3g/L. Total sulphur at bottling 65ppm.
Vines planted 46 years ago, 22% whole bunch, raised in second and third fill puncheons. The vineyard is a great place to visit, has a sort of ‘secret garden’ feel about it, but don’t mind me. They’re also doing good things with native bushland regeneration, and carbon capture. Liquorice, the sort of brittle dark toffee my Mum used to make, blackberry and blackcurrant, sea spray and oyster shells, biscuit spices, and thyme. It’s full of juicy and fresh small dark berried flavour, ferrous and deep, layers of pumice stone tannin, and for all the darkness, it’s still so light on its feet. Finish is very long, with a spiced poached strawberry and rhubarb thing happening, and lavish stony tannin. Wonderful.
