SKU: YAYUNHILSH18
Perfumed cool climate Shiraz; deliciously medium bodied with a lick of aniseed spice. Hand harvested, the bunches pass across a sorting table before being destemmed with no crushing to retain whole berries. Fermentation in the Yarra Yering half-tonne open-fermenters, gently hand lunged twice daily. A component of 100% whole bunch fermentation as well as some 20% whole bunch fermentation bring some volume and plushness to the fruit palate. Air bag pressed to release the last fermenting juice form the many whole berries remaining. The wine then aged for 12 months in French oak puncheons (500L) only 25% new oak.

”A wine with long fingers and arms. It was grown on a single block of shiraz, planted in '73. It eats elegance for breakfast, berried fruit for lunch, herb and wood spice notes for afters. Plum, char, smoked herbs, fresh red cherries, a slip of creamy/smoky oak. The balance of this wine is an experience in itself. Best of all: it pushes out gloriously through the finish.”
– Campbell Mattinson
