Sourced from a small selection of our favourite shiraz blocks, the grapes were both hand and machine picked before fermentation in the traditional open top vats. The wine was then matured in older, large format French oak casks. These 2,700 litre casks highlight the fruit purity whilst making sure that oak isn’t the dominant character.
From dry-grown estate blocks averaging 40yo, fermented in large 2700l used casks. It is spectacular value, and more obvious in all aspects: depth, colour, richness (plum to the fore), tannins (for balance and longevity). There's no sin in drinking this, but it will still be on the up 20 years from now.
