HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION, 2017 Edition
Estate-grown, made at Yering Station, matured in French oak for 11 months. This is quite an entry point shiraz, the bouquet immediately grabbing attention with its black fruits, pepper, licorice, spice and cedary oak, every bit of which comes through in 3D on the medium-bodied palate. The line, length and balance are perfect. Rating 95.
Selectively hand-harvested, low cropped (2.5 to 3 tonnes per acre), fruit from our Dixons Creek Vineyard.
Grapes destemmed to an open fermenter. A small portion of whole bunches were added and the ferment allowed to proceed using naturally occurring yeasts. Following fermentation the wine was pressed, then transferred to a mix of new and used French barriques for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 11 months.
