ATTRIBUTES

This wine has lovely blackberry fruit on the bouquet. On the nose is power and concentration. The palate has great intensity of flavour and rich berry shiraz characteristics. The finish is long with juicy tannins, and lovely balance and length. Ready to drink now, but will also continue to improve over the next 8 to 12 years. Vegan friendly. 

WINEMAKING

The 2018 vintage has been recognised as one of the best vintages in recent time across South Australia. Mother Nature treated us well with sufficient spring and early summer rainfall to keep ground moisture at an optimum level. A long even ripening period during the summer, meant that there was terrific canopy growth with great fruit set and balance. The Shiraz was hand picked mid March 2018, and the fruit transported via refrigerated trucks to O’Leary Walker Wines in the Clare Valley. The fruit was then crushed and destemmed into open 2 tonne fermenters. The fermenting grapes and juice (must) was hand plunged twice daily, with daily pump-overs to integrate the colour and tannin into the ferment. Once alcoholic fermentation was completed the must was pressed into new and 2nd use French oak for malolactic fermentation. The wine was in barrel for 30 months, with rack and returns every 3 months. The wine was lightly filtered before bottling.

VINEYARDS

Situated on the Teakle property in Port Lincoln, 2 kilometres from the foreshore, with 150 meters elevation. The soils are a rich combination of sandy loam topsoil overlying a friable red-brown clay loam subsoil. The moderately warm summer temperatures and maritime breeze allow perfect ripening conditions in the vineyard. The long sunshine hour days encourage even ripening of the grapes, while the gentle breeze helps cool the bunches, retaining the beautiful natural acidity.
