about the harvest: 

2017 was the midway mark of the four year drought, producing a small grape crop. The vines responded with top quality juice with lower ph’s and higher acids. Good concentration and structure in the reds will see the wine develop well in the bottle and age magnificently.

in the cellar : Fermentation is split between using open top tanks for punching down the skin cap and closed stainless steel tanks for pumping the juice over the skins. The fermenting grapes underwent maceration for 2 weeks. The goal was to achieve a complex and versatile Shiraz. The wine matured for 14 months in 300L oak barrels of which 25% were new oak and 75% older barrels. 10% American oak and 90% French.
