James Halliday – Rich, ripe and round. A dark-fruited, sloshy textured, glistening Clare shiraz of good energy and sense of freshness, despite the concentration and bold character on show. Blackberry compote, black jellybeans, clove and cinnamon spice between the bouquet and palate. Silky tannins shaping things nicely. The finish a bit smudged with gritty tannin and twiggy spice notes, but fine, you'll get past that for the most part. Easygoing shiraz. - Mike Bennie

About This Wine

THE WINE
This Shiraz is a brick red colour with purple hues and displays an intense nose of blackberry and blackcurrant fruits, mocha and star anise with hints of cedary oak. It’s a medium to full-bodied wine with rich fruitcake and mulberry flavours overlying soft tannins and structural acidity, which will stand the wine in good stead for years to come.

VINEYARD
This wine was made predominantly from fruit we know very well – the Shiraz grown at our own vineyard at White Hut, just outside the Clare township. The vines here grow in a mosaic of soil types which are generally quite bony, yielding fruit with incredible power and intensity. This is supplemented with fruit from neighbouring vineyards and from our vineyard at Leasingham, at the southern end of the valley which has a cooler aspect and contributes elegance and spice.

WINEMAKING
This Shiraz was handled in small batches and hand-plunged in open fermenters, for gentle extraction of colour and flavour while maintaining a soft, supple mouthfeel. This approach helps the ferment breath and allows us to keep a very close eye on the development of the wine through fermentation to ensure that it’s not over-extracted. It’s a hallmark of a truly handcrafted boutique wine. After fermentation, the wine was barrel-matured in quality French oak, in a combination of hogsheads and puncheons for approximately 18 months.
