Vineyard Elderton vineyard, Craneford, Eden Valley
Soil Shallow sandy loam over rocks typical of Eden Valley
Season A long, dry and moderate summer allowed us to make all harvest decisions purely on berry ripeness. Therefore the resulting wine has a wonderful freshness and vibrancy
Winemaking A hand-picked whole bunch component was spread over the base of the open fermenter before putting the destemmed portion on top. Cool fermentation with pumpovers for 10 days before pressing and immediate transfer on solids to seasoned French oak.
Maturation The last throws of fermentation and malolactic fermentation were on lees in oak followed by further maturation in seasoned French oak. 7 months total time in oak.
Winemaker Comments “We are really excited about our Eden Valley Shiraz. The slightly higher altitude of the vineyard means cooler nights and less intense maximum daytime temperatures allow great aromatic presence and a nervy fine tannin profile. All the hallmark flavours are here, wrapped up in a delicious youthful, savoury and vibrant package. – Cheers,” Jules
