Vintage 2016. The fruit for this wine is grown at our Willoughby Bridge Vineyard in the north of the region. Willoughby Bridge Vineyard is planted on the revered rich, red Cambrian soil, one of the oldest soil types in Australia and renowned for the production of intensely flavoured Shiraz. After a mild growing season, a warm summer gave us low yields of concentrated flavours.
After handpicking, the separate fruit parcels were given a short pre-fermentation cold soak before being crushed and open fermented at warm temperatures. The wine was hand-plunged twice daily during its six-day ferment to extract the desired levels of colour and flavour. After ferment the individual wines were pressed of into new and secondary oak casks. Bottled in December 2017.
