Blend Information
55% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 4% Viognier
In The Vineyard
The soils are deep red and are a mixture of weathered / decomposed granite and Hutton. A small percentage is made up of clay and Clovelly.
About The Harvest
The different clones of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mouvedre and Viognier are kept separate (micro-vinified) throughout vinification. Vinified in 300 litre French oak barrels for 15 months, the wine underwent bottle maturation for a further 18 months. This wine is made in a full robust style and has the potential to age.
