4 year old American Oak
The Shiraz and Grenache were picked a week apart in early to mid March. The shiraz was crushed and de-stemmed, fermented on skins for 7 days and plunged 3 times a day. This extracted maximum colour and flavour. The grenache had a gentler ride, soft pressed, fermented on skins for 8 days and stored in old oak
This is the first release of this wine drawing fruit from our Blewitt Springs vineyard sitting on sandy soil offering excellent drainage and resistance to disease. The vines are 65 and 85 years old respectively but don’t be fooled, these wise old ladies are full of sass producing fruit of uncommon intensity and flavour. This is our debut blend and makes quite a statement with lifted red and blue fruits Enjoy now or cellar up to 10 years.
