Shiraz 2022

REGION

Heathcote, VIC

TASTING

Violets, spice, and perfumed fresh dark fruits. It’s concentrated with velvety tannin and supple black fruits and beautiful balances with a refreshing lingering finish.

WINEMAKING

+

The fruit is handpicked and 30% whole bunched pressed and vinified.  A minimal amount of sulfur is added and left in large format and seasoned barrels for a total of 10 months. 

VINEYARD

+

A blend of two vineyards from Heathcote both on east-facing slopes at 300m above sea level, from Mt. Ida and pt 23 clones of shiraz. 

VITICULTURE

+

We purchase our fruit from the vineyards, in partnership with growers, however we do use our own fruit from young vines. We grow, make and farm our vineyards using a philosophy of sustainability and regenerative agriculture, applying a mix of biological, bio-dynamic and organic practices.

REVIEW

+

Sourced from east-facing slopes (cooler) only, in a warmer part of Victoria. Mottled aromas of blueberry, iodine, licorice pastille and smoked meat. Mid-weighted and supple-smooth, with just the right amount of cracked peppery tannins defining the finish, while conferring an element of sophistication. Drink or hold. Screw cap. – 90 Points, Ned Goodwin.

“Deep ruby and purple colours in the glass. Blackberry, violet, pepper and ironstone aromas. Palate is weighty and full, loads of dark berry fruit at the core then equal amounts of dark spices and ferrous minerality. All that palate weight is well bound by gravelly tannins that carry it long and dry to the end. Cellaring will be well rewarded.”  92/100, Stuart Knox – The Real Review
