$30.00

GRAPE VARIETY: Shiraz
VINTAGE: 2018
REGION: 100% One Tree Hill
ANALYSIS: 14.5% Alcohol
CELLAR POTENTIAL: This wine is approachable upon release, but will benefit with careful cellaring between 8-12 + years
COLOUR: High black/purple intensity, with red hues.
BOUQUET: Displays deeply scented aromas of blackcurrants, truffle and dark chocolate with underlying subtle oak characters.
PALATE: A supple, rich and juicy entry of dark berries, plums and spice. The tannins are rounded and integrated, with a long silky finish.
VINEYARD & VITICULTURE: Sourced from four low yielding vineyards from Southern and Northern One Tree Hill, with an average yield of 2.0 tonne per acre.
WINEMAKING: Crushed and destemmed to open top fermenters, where cooling was employed throughout the fermentation between 18-28oC. There was two pump overs and one hand plunge every day to optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction. After 7-10 days of primary fermentation, the fermented wine was then gently Basket Pressed to a settling tank for 2 days, where it was then racked to new and seasoned French oak barrels to undergo Malolactic fermentation.
STORAGE/MATURATION: 24 months in new & seasoned French oak Hogheads.
