"Night-harvested from the estate Farm Block, fermented on skins for 7 days, a portion barrel-fermented, matured in French oak (21% new) for 16 months. Good, deep colour; a very well made medium to full-bodied shiraz, its terroir first and foremost with supple black fruits, a dash of chocolate, good length and balance, the tannins ripe and round, the oak totally integrated." 94 points, James Halliday Wine Companion, August 2017.

Dense rich full fruit nose in the pepper-blood plum spectrum. Fine grained French oak has contributed layers of vanilla and cinnamon to complex the fruit.

Palate

This is a stylish wine. It has full flavour in which the seamless, silky tannins mould with the concentrated fruit to provide richness, yet it retains a tight, elegant structure.

Background

The inherent fruit vibrancy of the wine comes from our 'Farm' block. Fruit is harvested at night to take advantage of the naturally cool temperatures, then fermented on skins for a week. A portion of the wine was barrel fermented to integrate the fruit and oak and racked several times to aid natural clarification, integrate the oak and to soften and complex the tannin structure. The fruit, sourced fruit from estate vineyards, has been selected to give the depth for which this wine is renown. Good winter rainfalls provided the moisture in the vineyards for what was to become a dry and warm ripening season. January temperatures were above average. Significant rain that fell on Valentine's Day, provided initial anxiety but ultimately provided a much needed drink for the vines and delayed the harvest to allow flavour ripeness to develop. The result has been lovely, textured wines.
