Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
This wine was made from Shiraz and Viognier grown on the family’s estate vineyard. A selection of fruit was harvested from the younger vines planted in 2006 on a high ironstone rocky ridge and the original vines around the winery. This vineyard is managed under organic principals (certified organic 2010), a practice we feel is important for reflecting the uniqueness of the site. This wine was fermented as long and slowly as possible, at temperatures not exceeding 86 F in open fermentation tanks that allowed the cap to be worked by plunging and gently pumping over. An extended maceration period followed completion of the ferment to allow optimal color, flavor, and tannin extraction. It was aged for 18 months in 500 liter French Oak Puncheons.

Serving Hints
This Shiraz is an ideal food wine which will compliment many dishes including mushroom risotto, lamb, duck, and most red meat dishes.
