Vintage

The 2012 summer in Western Australia was warm and dry with near perfect ripening conditions.The Shiraz was sourced from the Margaret River region of WA, vinified in open-top fermenters and plunged twice daily for two weeks then gently pressed. After settling the wine was racked to oak for malolactic fermentation. The oak used was 40% new and 60% one-year-old French oak from the Le Grande and Francois Freres cooperages. After 20 months maturation the wine was minimally filtered and bottled in December 2012.
