Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Grown in the middle / lower portion of Rosily Vineyard site, where gravel loam soils merge with some darker clay based earth. This was specifically identified as being ideally suited for the shiraz vines in the initial stages of planting.
Winemaker Notes
Grapes were crushed and destemmed, with some juice bled off on day 1. Cultured yeast was then added, the cap hand plunged three or four times daily early in the ferment. Hand plunging was reduced as alcohol levels increased to avoid excessive tannin extraction.
