2013 saw low rainfall in spring with January being quite dry and warm. The dry weather allowed fruit to reach optimum ripeness, providing a good balance of acidity and flavour. Some light showers in late February to help freshen the fruit, with vintage starting later than usual but finishing quickly by the end of March.
The parcels of Shiraz for this wine were selected by the winemaker for the lifted berry characteristics that are notable in this wine style. Fermented on skins for five to seven days at 20-24°C with American oak.
Enjoy now or cellar up to three years.
