  • WINEMAKING 2017 had a wet and cool growing season which led into a mild ripening and harvest period, with Shiraz harvest occurring a bit later than usual between 7th of March and the 10rd of April. These mild ripening conditions kept the lifted aromatics and gave the resulting wine a vibrant fleshy berry fruit flavour profile with crisp but soft tannins. Judicious oak use contributed balanced oak flavours and aromas that complement the wines tannin structure and richness. Each batch was fermented for 7-8 days on skins with low intensity pumpovers conducted to preserve the primary fruit flavours in the wine. The wine was then pressed off to finish fermentation in tank or old oak barrels. Most batches spend part of their maturation time in old French and American oak.
