Awards/Reviews

93 pts Vinous – (Josh Raynolds) September 2022

Dark Purple, Deep-pitched, primary black and blue fruits on the perfumed nose, along with suggestions of cola, candied flowers and exotic spices. Plush and expansive on the palate, offering sweet cassis, cherry cola and mulberry flavors that tighten up and turn spicier with aeration. Finishes very long and smooth, with fine-grained tannins and a resonating blue fruit note. 20% new French barrels.

Winemaker Notes

Single vineyard Shiraz from our Jimmy Section vineyard, a 49-year-old, 5-acre plot, with rows running North/South. Shiraz clone 1654, planted on loam over limestone soils at an elevation of 100m above sea level. Average yields are 2-3 Tonnes/Acre, hand-picked determined by flavour. Crush-destemmed into 3 & 5 Tonne open fermenters, hand plunging and pump overs 3 times a day. Fermented to dryness on skins, average 10-12 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation in French oak 300L barrels, 20% new, 18-24 months. Course filtered and bottled without fining agents. Drink now or cellar for 10 years +
