De-stemmed to open stainless steel and concrete fermenters, pumped over and plunged twice daily, 13-18 days on skins, matured in French puncheons and hogsheads (18% new) for 19 months. Deep, dense colour; the striking bouquet exudes savoury pipe tobacco and smoke aromas, spices also seeking airplay. The full-bodied palate features a titanic struggle between the plethora of black fruits and insistent high quality tannins evident from the first sip all the way through to the aftertaste. Remarkable wine.
The first part of this site was purchased in 2008 and included 52 acres of vacant land. The vision was to wait until resources permitted and plant this ares of land as specifically as possible. Just before the 2015 vintage a further 37 acres of land were purchased, which included 16 acres of established shiraz vines. This vineyard produced 27 tonnes in its first vintage, with fruit going into My Hands, Ares, Single Vineyard and a few barrels to Bella’s Garden. Development of the unplanted site began in April 2016, with planting to commence in the spring.
