100% Shiraz grapes grown in the McLaren Vale wine region.
A well-planned blend of premium Shriaz parcels, hand and machine harvested, in late February through to early March. The fruit is cooled overnight in the winery and then fermented separately in small open fermenters whilst hand plunging twice a day.
Alcohol: 14.5% | pH: 3.49 | Acidity: 7g/L
“This is so delicious it’s hard to put the glass down. Swirling whole bunch juiciness, dark, pliant and fleshily fruit-focused, with lip smacking fresh, ripe flavours and an intriguing pot pouri of savouriness.” 95 points – DMWP
Vintage 2016: “Distinctly deeper colour than its Dona sibling. Fruit selection is part of the story, but so, too, is the making. This is intense, yet barely medium-bodied, dustry tannins interacting with dark very fruits and regional dark chocolate. Totally convinving winemaking.” 95 points – James Halliday
