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 blocks. The 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

 

Selected vineyards throughout the Barossa Valley floor, with 15% coming off of G & H block here on our Estate.

 

Winemaking

 

A small amount of 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 15 days on skins the wine was pressed and put to French oak for 6 months. The wine was blended and bottled with no fining.

 

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 slightly cooler and longer growing season of 2022, making it a great drink on its own, but can also pair well with red meat dishes.

Alcohol: 13.6%

 

pH: 3.73
