The Fruit

Entirely from our Heysen Estate Vineyard, this wine is a blend of all three clones of our Shiraz- Kalimna 3C, 1654 and BVRC30. Deep loam over clay, with outcrops of quartz stone and ironstone.

 

Winemaking

Harvested as separate clones and fermented wild in open fermenters. Gentle hand plungling twice per day and basket pressed, then stored in a 3000L French Oak Foudre for 18 months. Bottled with no fining.

 

The Wine

Our take on the classic Barossa Shiraz, this wine has a inky purple colour with a deep red hue. Aromas of dark plum, coffee and black pepper. The palate is rich and voluptuous, with the classic blue fruits and smooth silky tannins. This wine has great capacity to age and will continue to soften and develop more secondary fruit characters.

Story Behind The Label

The shape is the north-eastern Shiraz block on our estate vineyard. The 60 lines represent the exact number of rows in the block.  The vineyard was planted by my father, Martin Pfeiffer, in 1994 and comprises 3 different shiraz clones. As 4th generation grape growers we wanted our Estate range to reflect our love of the land.

The Wine

Our take on the classic Barossa Shiraz, this wine has a inky purple colour with a deep red hue. Aromas of dark plum, wild berries and chocolate/coffee. Medium to full bodied the palate is rich and voluptuous, with the classic dark red fruits and smooth silky tannins. As our flagship wine, it has great capacity to age and will continue to soften and develop more secondary & tertiary characters.
