Overview

2018 was a very dry year in the Hunter Valley and this is reflected in the depth of colour and tannin in the wine. The climate is hot with high evaporation rates and generally low rainfall, making irrigation essential. The climate is also continental, resulting in long sunny days and noticeably cooler nights. Modern viticultural and winemaking techniques mean that the climate can be seen as one of the region's strengths. Long sunshine hours ensure fruit ripens fully and low relative humidity results in little incidence of disease.

The fruit for this Shiraz was sourced from our premium Vanessa Vale vineyard. The fruit was picked in the cool of the night where they were transported to the winery and transferred to stainless steel tanks to ferment over a 10 day period using a selected yeast strain. The juice was then pressed into new French and American Oak where it was held to further develop for 12 months. This gives the resulting wine great depth of flavour and ensures great ageing potential.
