Vineyards

We source a single vineyard in the Frankland River Region for this wine. This region is perfectly suited
to producing many red and white varieties due to its continental climate combined with low vigour and
moderate ripening conditions. We have chosen this particular vineyard for its ability to produce
typical Frankland River Shiraz, which as a result of being a cool climate, is intense in colour with ripe
flavours yet is elegant in style and structure.

Season

Leading into the 2016 vintage we had excellent rainfall during the winter months of 2015, some
strong winds in spring and minimal rain during the summer period and ideal diurnal weather
conditions during the ripening period. 2016 was characterised by very low yields resulting in
great concentration and purity of fruit. All in all very favourable conditions for producing high
quality grapes and wines.

Winemaking

The grapes where hand harvested to ensure quality was maintained. Fermentation was carried out
in open fermenters with fifteen percent whole bunch inclusion. After primary ferment the wine was
gently pressed off skins to French oak barrels, of which 40% was new. After 2 years maturation in
barrel the wine was blended prior to bottling.

Tasting notes

A wonderful bouquet of mulberries, anise and spicy cherry. The palate is soft with rich berry
fruits and velvety tannins. The line and length excellent. Aged in French oak for two years this
wine offers excellent cellaring potential.
