About This Wine
Hand picked from a 72 year old dry grown Blewitt Springs vineyard and a younger Clarendon vineyard. 35% whole bunch the remainder lightly destemmed to retain whole berries before a 4 day cold soak. Indigenous fermentation with hand plunging throughout the vinification. Elevage in 3 year old hogsheads and a large oak tank for 12 months.
Cool blue and red fruit lift with layers of spice to entice, supported by a gentle old-oak creaminess, which progresses to the palate exhibiting bright, nervy, and fleshy persistence filed down nicely by fine and savoury tannins.

James Halliday – From 72yo dry-grown vines at Blewitt Springs, and a younger parcel from Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard. Hand-picked, 35% whole bunches, the balance destemmed, 4 days cold soak, wild-fermented, matured in used oak for 12 months. Terrific colour and intensity at every point along the way. A storm of black fruits and tannins breaks out from the first sip, and continues relentlessly until you arrive at the back-palate, finish and aftertaste when the skies clear and the clarity of the pure black fruits is revealed.
