Vintage Conditions

Vintage 2014 was relatively interesting and after frost early in the season, it panned out quite well for both our white and red wines. Spring saw average weather conditions followed by a hot, dry spell during late summer. The early frost decreased our yields but careful management of the vines, including timely watering during a particularly hot period in late January, kept the vines stress free and in excellent condition.

Tasting Notes

We have been working hard over the past five years to improve our Shiraz, and we hope that this 2014 ‘Limited Release’ Shiraz is a precursor to releasing something special in our premium range, in the not too distant future.
Now that our vines are more mature, we are producing Shiraz that has more intensity and depth, yet still remaining elegant in style. Forty per cent of this wine was aged in new oak, of which half was French and half was American, adding power and complexity.

Winemaking

Our Shiraz was crushed and chilled to capture the bright red
fruit characters of the variety. The grapes were fermented with a
spicy Rhone origin yeast. Fermentation was at a moderately cool
temperature (26ºC) to maintain fruit freshness and varietal characters.
The wine remained on skins for nine days before being pressed to a combination of 1 year old and older American, and French oak, for malolactic fermentation and maturation for 18 months. This batch was specifically chosen for its depth of flavour and intensity.
