Shiraz (100%), HILLTOPS 

The 2021/2022 growing season commenced with good spring rains, giving way to a temperate summer.  Mild, cool conditions through to harvest yielded beautifully clean fruit and ripe tannins.

Shiraz is grown on a number of elevated sites with deep granitic loams in the Hilltops region.

Grapes are harvested at around 13 Baumé, to capture freshness and purity at optimal ripeness. The destemmed grapes are open-fermented and worked with remontage and délestage.  Malolactic fermentation and maturation takes place in Allier and Tronçais oak before blending and bottling at 12 months age.

Lifted violets, red fruits, ripe cherry and gentle spice yield to a palate of dark plums, sweet fleshy tannins and a long, resonant finish.

Decant before serving.
