2018 was an outstanding year. Conditions were near perfect throughout the whole growing season. The year was warm without being too hot and the vines were able to ripen the fruit to the degree we desired without any stress. This means all aspects of fruit composition was good and acid was naturally maintained.
This Shiraz is a complex blend due to the different ripening conditions of the different parcels of grapes picked. Two thirds of the fruit parcels were wild fermented to create further complexity and depth. For 12 months this wine was matured with oak, mostly French. A dash of Mourvèdre was added to provide a dark fruit perfume lift and add complexity to the palate.
