Select parcels of Shiraz from across the Shingleback Vineyard are hand-crafted in small, open fermenters to maximize the potential of each. Maturation for 15 months in 45% new and 55% second use, fine grained American and French oak hogsheads softens, enhances and integrates the fruit and structural components of the wine. Individual barrel selection is carried out to create the final blend, which is minimally filtered prior to bottling. Intense aromas of ripe summer strawberry, blackberry and dark cherry, with nuances of milk chocolate and notes of rose; the mid-palate is defined by a fine tannin structure and acidity .
