THE WINE: The wine has a deep crimson colour. The nose is filled with aromas of ripe plum, dark cherries, roasted capsicum and mocha. The flavours carry on to the palate, which is full of intense berry fruit, finely structured, with dark toasty oak and a long persistent finish.

THE VINTAGE: The vineyards cycled through the growing season with their own individual rhythm, responding to the challenges of a wet, cool spring, and a long, dry summer to emerge with clean, naturally balanced fruit. The outcome is a low yielding, high quality vintage with strong aging potential.

THE WINEMAKING: Harvested on the 8th of April 2022 in the coolest part of the morning, the wine was crushed and destemmed to a fermenter to cold soak for four days. The wine was then inoculated with a specially selected yeast designed to bring out the varietal characteristics of high-quality Heathcote Shiraz. The wine was carefully managed to achieve maximum colour, while keeping freshness and flavour intensity and the extraction of fine grained tannins. The wine was fermented for 12 days reaching a maximum temperature of 28°C before pressing off skins to tank and undergoing MLF on yeast lees to create volume and mouthfeel. The wine underwent 18 months of maturation in a combination of different vessels to increase palate weight and richness. The wine was filtered a month prior to being bottled.
