The colour shows youthful red and purple hues. On the nose are intense aromatics of blueberry, some black pepper, subtle spicy oak and dark chocolate. The palate is ripe with soft red fruits, subtle spices and a silky finish.

Wine Making

2016 was a fast ripening season. We picked our Shiraz blocks in early March which was 2-3 weeks ahead of normal years. This early season means we had to allow sugar levels to get relatively high before we achieved the fruit flavour ripeness we like to see. We did a number of yield trials in our Shiraz blocks in 2016 and these small two tonne parcels were all hand plunged batches with 20-30% whole bunches in the ferments. Whole bunches also contribute in the Block 12 ferment. Block 12 is handpicked each year from close planted vines and is the most fragrant parcel of Shiraz each year. With back blending, the whole bunch component contributes about 10% in the final wine. At this level it is a complex flavour and texture, adding another dimension without dominating the wine. In 2016 all batches were wild fermented also adding further complexity to the wine.
