Sourced from the NSW Hilltops region, at an elevation of around 600m.
This rich and flavoursome wine shows classic cool climate Shiraz notes of white pepper and aromatic red fruit, combined with a long, well-structured finish.
The fruit was sourced from two of the Hilltops’ finest vineyards and was picked in late March at around 13.5be.
After picking, the fruit was crushed and destemmed into open top fermenters, where a warm, even fermentation took place. Once pressed, the wine was matured for 10 months in French oak barriques, a third of which were new.
Though drinking beautifully now, this fine wine will gain further complexity and interest over the next 10-12 years.
This full flavoured wine will pair well with rich dishes such as lamb shanks, ratatouille and fine aged cheese.
