Winemaking and Viticulture

Syrah grapes were hand-harvested from Estate-owned vineyards of individual sites and clones and then fermented separately before blending post-fermentation. A range of maceration periods allowed for increased complexity. 25 % of whole bunches were included in the fermentations which contribute to freshness, aromatics and structure. A small percentage of Viognier (2 % in total) was included in some batches to further aid in providing complexity and texture.

The Wine

The wine was aged for 14 months in a mixture of new and older French oak 228 litre barriques plus larger 5000 litre oak ovals. This barrel aging regime utilizes the philosophy more typically used in the making of Pinot Noir and includes barrel stirring of the lees and very minimal racking.

Drink 2017 to 2027.
