The grapes for this wine were sourced from two vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels
Winegrowing District; Cornerstone and Omahu Gravels. Their warm stony soils provide
excellent drainage with very little water retention, ideal for growing high-quality red
grapes. Intensive viticulture including shoot and bunch thinning allowing us to harvest
perfectly ripened grapes from these now 15 - 25-year old vines.
The individual hand picked parcels were destemmed to individual 85-year old concrete
fermenters and then fermented with a mix of wild and cultured yeasts. Hand plunging was
employed for colour and tannin extraction. A period of post-fermentation maceration was
employed before the wine was aged in French oak barrels for 14 months.
Enjoy with red meat dishes especially those with middle eastern flavours.
