Winemaker's Notes

Rich and intensely flavoured, this rambunctious Shiraz is full bodied and crafted for longevity. TASTING NOTES Deep blackberry, exuberant red fruits and chocolate deliver excellent length and persistent tannins. .WINEMAKER COMMENTS: Sourced entirely from the Pecador vineyard, planted in 2001 on red sandy loam with fragments of limestone at depth. Langhorne Creek experienced a long, slow vintage in 2017. Excellent soil moisture profiles from the early rains improved nutrient levels in vines. Open canopy management of the vineyard allowed good air flow and combined with perfect summer temperatures, translated into good yields, healthy ferments and natural acidity. Maturation in 50% new and 50% seasoned American oak for 25 months produced a rich and robust Shiraz.
