Vintage Notes

The 2012 vintage was even and moderate. Average temperatures throughout spring and summer allowed the vines to flourish with good fruit set. Mild conditions in January and March led to evenly ripened fruit with outstanding flavor and depth.

Winemaking Notes

The grapes for this Shiraz were harvested in February and March. After destemming, the grapes were fermented in both static potters and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and 3-5 days post ferment maceration helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build an wine structure.
