Winemaking: Harvested in the cool of the morning to avoid the warmer temperatures of the day. The fruit is quickly delivered to the winery for destemming and crushing prior to a regular fermentation in stainless steel tank. The wine is aerated and temp controlled for an even ferment and then spends 3 months settling in tank prior to bottling and an early release.
2022 Vintage: The 2022 vintage presented excellent growing conditions. The harvest was slightly later than usually starting on average 2 weeks later than the previous vintages. The temperatures were mild through the harvest months which produced elegant and vibrant red wines.
Tasting Note: This lighter bodied Shiraz shows real restraint yet is enormously flavoursome. Nicely rounded with soft tannins and persistent intensity make this a genuine crowd pleaser. Pair it with a cheese platter.
