"A 6040% blend, destemmed and crushed, 70% with 35 days on skins, 30% 8 days on skins, matured in French oak (30% new) for 12 months. The blackcurrantcassisherb notes of the cabernet unexpectedly come out on top of the blackberry and plum of the shiraz. This medium-bodied wine has been carefully handled in the winery during both the fermentation and maturation phases, emerging with absolutely perfect balance."

Palate

Great tannin persistence through the middle of the palate where the avours are also savoury dominant, fruit avours of blackberry and plum providing the lift and vibrancy as a supporting act. A perfect blend of sweet and savoury.

Background

This wine is a blend of 4 blocks from within our vineyard, all on the western side of the creek with variances in top soil depth, subsoil type, row orientation, and micro- climate. The top soil is predominately a red clay loam, and the subsoil varies from shattered limestone to salt & pepper siltstone and bluestone at depth. All vines are grown on their own roots. The fruit was crushed and destemmed prior to fermentation, during which 2-3 pump overs a day were used to ensure that each wine achieved a full tannin structure. The majority of the wine was left on skins for 50 days before being basket pressed, settled overnight and racked to a combination of new (35%) and used (65%) barrels where it underwent natural malolactic fermentation. The wines were racked off lees and returned to oak to mature separately for the rst 6 months before being blended and returned to oak, a total maturation period of 20 months. - Winemaker, Andrew
