An inviting, generous and balanced nose of milk chocolate and red berries, with a white pepper and spice lift.

The wine is medium bodied with a lovely and generous palate. Balanced fruit profile with a good amount of red berries. Classic cool climate shiraz notes of coffee, sarsaparilla and pepper. Delicate and lively with silky tannin and a long, juicy finish.

Vineyard Notes
The 2020 Estate Shiraz consists of a regional blend from the northern part of Coonawarra which is slightly warmer and better suited to rich Shiraz. Majority of the blend is from Tim Kidman’s block, with a smaller parcel coming from Rob McLeod at Tirricke Farms.
Winemaker Notes
The fruit was harvested and destemmed in the vineyard leaving us with the individual berries only, and putting the organic material back into the vineyard. The grapes were fermented in both open and closed top fermenters for an average of 10 days on skins. Closed fermenters are used to retain aromatics while open top fermenters are used for flavour and colour extraction. Malolactic fermentation was completed in stainless steel and then the blend was put to old French oak Barriques and Hogsheads for 8 months on average prior to bottling.
