Quick Overview

From two vineyards at Blewitt Springs, open-fermented with varying percentages of whole bunches, 11 months in French puncheons (15% new). Exceptional power and complexity, yet retains nigh on perfect balance and structure. The combination of Blewitt Springs and '17 provides shiraz that will be remembered with awe for years to come. Super-fragrant spices and flowers leap from the glass, the glazed shiraz rounded and succulent yet not cloying.
97 points James Halliday

Product Description

We picked both blocks at quite different times and baumes to achieve individual outcomes at the fermenter. Our first parcel of fruit to arrive was early picked for vibrancy and freshness. We handsorted and destemmed 90% of this Shiraz, leaving a sprinkling of whole bunches on top of a single open fermenter. Our second vineyard’s fruit was delivered a week later and a touch riper. This parcel provided depth of flavour and was processed using 20% whole bunches and fermented with wild yeast.


Both pots were footstomped and left on skins post ferment for another two weeks before pressing. We used a combination of new (10%) and old French oak to mature our Shiraz and wine from each individual vineyard was kept separate until blending and bottling in late December 2017.


This years Shiraz has lifted aromatics of blue and red fruits, violet florals, olive tapenade and whole bunch spice. There’s a dusting of mocha which follows through onto the palate along with fine, savoury tannins and herbal hints backed by generous fruit and subtle oak influence. This wine is vibrant, juicy and approachable in youth.
