Palate is soft and medium bodied, with flavours of red cherry and forest berries with fine grain tannins.
The 2018 vintage had a dry winter and mild to warm spring, which helped the grapes to produce excellent varietal flavours and vibrant natural acid. During early summer temperatures were optimal for ripening, which allowed good flavour development for the grape berries. Shiraz was harvested in February and early March and was fermented on skins in automated stainless steel fermenters for a period of 5-6 days to allow for full colour and tannin extraction. The must was then pressed off, clarified and commenced maturation using premium American and French oak to add richness and complexity. Once maturation was completed selected parcels of Shiraz were blend together to form this wine and a small amount of fining was done to balance this wine before bottling.
