WINE SERIES:Coonawarra Series

This is the fourth vintage of our Coonawarra Series Shiraz, and unlike its Cabernet Sauvignon sibling, this wine is sourced from fruit grown on the red soils in the earlier-ripening northern part of Coonawarra. Following harvest, in April 2016, the grapes were fermented in both closed and open static fermenters, with fruit remaining on skins for 10 days to increase flavour, tannin and colour extraction.

Maturation took place in second and third fill French oak Hogsheads for the duration of 12 months while 10% of this portion was treated to new French oak to increase structure and the potential for aging.

The Coonawarra Series Shiraz is made in a ripe and generous style with elegance and spicy varietal characteristics, typical of this cool climate region.
