V I N T A G E

Generally accepted as a stellar harvest. The first for a number of years to start at around our traditional harvest time (3rd week of February), and then became one of the longest, (over 10 weeks) due to the superbly mild and benevolent weather. Mild days, cool nights, and unhurried ripening patterns, all helped deliver high quality fruit in perfect condition.

 

S T Y L E

Deep colour. A wonderful expression of the traditional Barossa style. Sweetly, softly perfumed with excellent melding of vanillin and cedar oak aromatics and rich Barossa Shiraz fruit. Coffee and mocha intensity in the mouth. Firm and weighty, but not cumbersome. Long seasoned water bent American oak influence is felt, but in check. Firm tannins, richness of mouth feel and distinct flavours auger well for a long future.

 

V I N I F I C A T I O N

A mix of hand plunged and pump over techniques in the traditional style influenced this wine. No whole bunch is undertaken for the Grains of Paradise, and the wine is finished in barrique with all the press wine included. American oak is sent to France for a 36 month European seasoning before being coopered into barriques using the immersion bending technique. The Wine is aged “sur lie” to give our interpretation of the traditional Barossa style with a contemporary twist.
