Winemaking Highlights

The best Shiraz from the Angullong vineyard was fermented with a submerged cap with twice daily pump-overs to extract colour and flavour. The wine was then matured in French Oak puncheons (30% new, 70% 2 and 3 year old) for 12 months.

 

Reviews

91 Points - James Halliday, Australia Wine Companion 

A cooler year iterated as a sheath of peppery tannins and violet, anise, verdant herb, tapenade, clove and boysenberry aromas. Maturation in French oak (30% new) has imparted a savoury underbelly of cedar and smoky charcuterie notes. The finish, a bit shins and elbows; the reduction, still palpable. A little more time may bring greater poise, but my bet is on drinking this young.
