"Bright, precocious and unadulterated Barossa shiraz. Staining purple, blackberry, cassis and ripe plum, with a soft, saline texture and sapid fruit tannins."

Viticulture

Viticulture

The 2017/2018 growing season was characterised by long dry periods and regular heat spikes. The Shiraz vine yields were lower, with adequate fruit canopy to protect fruit from any sunburn. Fruit quality was very good due to fruit reaching optimum flavours and ripeness, while retaining natural fresh acidity. These ideal milder conditions saw the grape phenology mature in line with sugars levels, producing full flavoured wines which retained their natural acidity.
