Our Vineyards
“Our family vineyard is located in the picturesque and historic
Padthaway valley, 300 km south of Adelaide. Our rich, fertile
terra rossa soils, environmentally friendly viticulture, low yield
and exceptional fruit is how we consistently produce outstanding
wines. Small parcels of the highest quality fruit are selected
from our family vineyard and handcrafted to create wines with
amazing depth of flavour, style and balance…” ~ David Bryson

Winemaking Notes
Our Shiraz is fermented in static fermenters at controlled
temperatures to retain the varietal aromatics. Once complete the
wine is left for 7–10 days on skins to aide in the extraction of soft
fleshy tannins and build wine structure. French & American oak
has been used sparingly to ensure maximum fruit expression is
retained in the final wine.

Vintage Overview
2015 was a very good season with predominantly mild, dry days.
Yields were generally low and this did result in some excellent
parcels of fruit being harvested. Vine-balance was carefully
monitored, resulting in fruit that demonstrates the vibrancy and
fruit-derived characters that we strive for in our wines.

Tasting Notes
Deep purple in colour. Ripe cassis and black plum fruits on the
nose with violets. Varietal fruit-driven palate, with cassis and dark
berryfruit and spice flavours. Soft tannins complement the fruit
with mouth-filling generous finish.
