Colour

The deep rich red colour hints at the intensity of this wine

Nose

The nose is full of regional ripe plum and dark cherries with a pinch of white pepper and sweet vanillin.

Palate

The flavours carry onto the palate which is full of big soft fruit, balanced by regional minerality, elegant oak and natural acid. The result is a classic Heathcote shiraz, a rich wine with a complex and fresh structure.

Background

We had an early start to harvest with the grapes coming off from the 25th of February through to the 10th of April. Good rains resulted in strong yields with the additional moisture helping develop bright, vibrant fruit with good definition and nice ripe tannins. Disease pressure was low as per the 'norm' allowing the fruit to fully ripen on the vine. Individual blocks were harvested and transported to our Hunter winery in the cool of the night, with the temperatures usually below 100C. The batches were fermented separately in a combination of open and closed fermenters after gentle destemming, producing 14 cuvées, all having slightly different handling (pressed straight to wood, some with extended skin contact, some with whole fruit). The wines were matured in predominately French oak barriques (20% new) in our temperature-controlled barrel shed at 16°C for 18mths. During this period they were racked three times. We assessed the different batches over time, selecting the better ones for the 'Rufus' blend. Pleasingly, most were deemed good enough, highlighting the strength of the vineyard and the vintage.
