Winemaking notes: The fruit was machine picked and fermented with a combination of yeast strains in concrete open fermenters for 10 days. After pressing it was then transferred to French oak for maturation (19% new oak, with the balance 2, 3 and 4 year old oak). After spending 11 months on lees to add to the mouthfeel and complexity, the wine was racked off, put back in barrel for another 8 months before undergoing a coarse filtration prior to bottling. The 2010 Shiraz reflects the outstanding vintage in the Barossa. A vibrant deep purple colour, the nose is showing raspberry, plum tar, earth and smoke with some attractive floral hints. The palate also reflects the quality of the 2010 vintage with typical Shiraz fruit sweetness dominating the palate initially followed by hints of vanilla and smoke from the new French oak, fine fruit and oak tannins give excellent structure and persistence.
