100 Year Old Vine Barossa Valley Shiraz
The fruit from these old bush vines, which are some of the oldest in the world, are cropped at 1 tonne to the acre and results in intense flavours rarely found.
Add to this the Barossa Valley’s reputation as one of the leading regions from this variety and you have some of the most unique fruit from which to produce this truly stunning wine.
Hand made in small 1 & 2 tonne fermenters, the fermentation was over 14 days and then another 7 days skin contact. Natural acidity was quite balanced in the year and therefore little additions were made. After pressing, the wine was racked into small oak, completing malolactic fermentation in oak, racked out on completion and then back in. this wine shows the benefit of aged low yielding vines with layer of concentration.
Concentrated rich black berry fruit on the aroma with added complexity through ageing in new French oak. The palate is full-flavoured with great depth and length, balanced with good acidity and fine long tannin. Cellar potential – will continue to improve over 8 to 10 years.
