Overview

60 year old dry grown Shiraz vines on the Bainton vineyard in the Broke Fordwich area were used to make this wine further adding to the intense flavour characters. The grapes were crushed and must chilled in a fermenter where skin contact was given. After 6 hours juice was drained from the skins and transferred into a small fermentation vessel. An aromatic yeast strain was used to produce a wine in a white wine style.

Tasting Notes

Aroma

A distinct Hunter Shiraz nose with typical cassis and mulberry aromas coupled with earthy notes and coffee char.

Palate

A full bodied wine bursting with upfront dark berry aromas. The use of oak provide delicate earthy, mushroom flavours and complement the intense fruit characters. Soft, fine grained tannins and a long finish further highlight the quality of this wine.
