A.T. Richardson Hard Hill Road Close Planted Shiraz 2017

Grape Variety: Shiraz
Halliday Rating: 96 Points

Grown in our close-planted blocks on our Hard Hill Road vineyard in Great Western, our close-planted shiraz is of an intensity and richness unique within the Grampians region. The vines in our most densely spaced block are planted only 600mm apart, resulting in about 14,000 vines per ha. The common planting density is about 2200 vines per ha. These shiraz grapes were vinified in small batches and fermented as mostly whole berries and whole bunches. The fermentation commenced with natural yeast, and after a week, inoculated yeast was added, and the fermenters were sealed and hardly touched for the final four weeks of skin contact. After gentle pressing, the wine then rested in French and American 500L puncheons for 18 months.
