Produced from 100 year old vines – single block series. Hand picked, basket pressed and unfiltered.The gentle unobtrusive winemaking has captured the subtle and intriguing characters of the centenarian Shiraz and Grenache fruit. Grapes destalked and placed uncrushed in small stainless steel open fermenters. Cultured yeast was used to start fermentation, hand plunged and gentle juice extraction by basket press. On skins for 20 days at 28°C Maturation in French & American oak for 24 months.
It's opulent and powerful, showing blackberry, toasty oak, cake spice and dark chocolate characters, leading to a richly expressed palate displaying fleshy texture and silky tannins. Wonderfully flavoursome and lingering with plenty of delicious flavours.
