The Wine

Vibrant purple colour, this wine has loads of blueberry and black olive character on the nose. The whole bunch component gives a dried herb character to the wine and adds freshness to the palate. It is particularly generous in red and dark fruit thanks to the the Indian summer in 2021, making it a great drink on its own, but can also pair well with red meat dishes.

Story Behind The Label

The owl connects to our property, where we have regular Tawny Frogmouth visitors, especially in and around our G and H Shiraz blocksThe upside-down house symbolises the fact that this is our entry level, ‘house’ Shiraz, but flipped on its head. Lighter, fresher and a drink now style that is an attempt at writing a new chapter in the Barossa Shiraz history book

The Fruit

Predominately grown here on our Estate vineyards using organic and biodynamic practices, this fruit comes from our younger vines, which were planted in 1997, and grow on loamy soils with broken quartz and ironstone scattered throughout.

Winemaking

Partial whole bunch & fermented in both small & medium sized open fermenters using wild yeast. A combination of hand plunging and pump overs allowed for gentle extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. After 10 days on skins the wine was pressed and put to old French oak Botti for 12 months. The wine was blended and bottled with no fining.
