Appellation: Margaret River
Vintage & Varietal: 2019 Shiraz
Winemaker's Notes: 2019 vintage started later than usual with reds picking in April and early May. This was due to lower than average temperatures during the months prior to harvest. The mild and cooler weather was quite beneficial to the ripening process of the reds, allowing a long stint of tannin ripening. Only the most balanced fruit from various sites across the Margaret River wine region make the cut for this blend. Crushed and de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks with gentle maceration techniques for perfect colour extraction and pressing off skins before completion of primary fermentation to keep a soft and balanced tannin profile. Post fermentation the wine was matured in French oak for 12 months.
