Production Notes
Fermented and kept on skins for two weeks. Following pressing and clarification, this wine was matured in French oak hogsheads for 15 months
Winemaker Notes
The outstanding 2018 vintage in Eden Valley has produced a single vineyard, limited release Shiraz with a deep, vibrant colour and a bouquet of dark plums with just a hint of chocolate and aniseed. The palate is richly structured with a firm, lingering finish and rarely do you see a Shiraz of this intensity from the high hills of Eden Valley. It is a wine that can be enjoyed in its vibrant youth but will certainly repay careful cellaring till 2038
Production
The 2018 vintage in the Barossa began with warm and dry weather, no disease pressure and one magnificent rain event at the end of January. This was perfectly timed for veraison and flavour development of the grapes.
Other Notes
Can be cellared until 2038
