(LOCAL) FOOD RECOMMENDATION: Ideal with grilled meats

(MICRO)CLIMATE: Warm Mediterranean
TERROIR: Soil types are varied, and include limestone-marl based soils of the Adelaide and Riverland areas, and the sandy, clay loam based soils of the Barossa.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS: During the ripening period from the end of January and through into March, the weather at our vineyards was warm and dry. These ideal conditions allowed the vines to flourish and finish ripening their Shiraz grapes with delicious richness and intensity.

VINIFICATION:
Fermentation was carried out under warm temperature conditions for a period of 6 days. This creates a good balance between extracting the appropriate tannin for wine structure and retaining fruit drive and aromatics.
