Wines Vintage
 
 

Despite the early heat and mid vintage rains, vintage 2006 has produced wonderfully aromatic wines with rich textures and full palates. All parcels of fruit were fermented separately in either 8 tonne open fermenters or 6 tonne static potter fermenters. Indigenous or 'wild' yeasts, naturally present on the grape skins were allowed to initiate the fermentation. Cultured winery yeasts were then added to complete the fermentation. These 'wild' ferments have helped contribute to the individual complexities of the wine, creating richness and fine textures.

This wine is a deep bold red purple showing exotic fig and plum sauce, mocha and black liquorice notes. The wine is dense and brooding, showing sweet Shiraz fruit concentration and fine seamless tannins. Long and lush through the finish, it has great integration, style and elegance.
