Natural and elegant European style wine with slightly floral and red cherry characters.
Made from grapes grown on the eastern ridge of the Barossa by the Schrapel Family. This youthful medium bodied wine smells of ripe cherries, florals and plums. It is a very natural, elegant style with floral cherry characters, blackberries and plums on the palate. The finish is soft with a restrained tannin structure and balanced toasty oak notes

From the Winery
The fruit was crushed, de stemmed and left on skins in open top fermenters for eight days at a controlled temperature of 15-18 degrees. The juice was then racked and pumped over the skin cap for optimal colour and fine tannin extraction. Once the primary fermentation was completed the juice was pressed and left to settle to complete secondary fermentation before being transferred into older French oak barrels for maturation.
The wine was matured for 12 months in oak to enhance fruit and palate structure development before bottling.
The Shiraz fruit was sourced from the Schrapel family vineyards and neighbouring vineyards in the Barossa foothills. Traditional viticulture practices were applied with the yield from old vines 6.25t/Ha. The vineyards were hand pruned to 70 buds per vine to limit yields.
