Vintage 2020 will be one we don’t forget in a hurry. Throughout bud burst and ripening the Riverina region was experiencing drought conditions, so supplementary water was crucial. Rainfall in the middle of vintage helped the vines to get through the hot days, and much of the Shiraz was picked before a large amount of rain we had forecast in the middle of vintage, and the Cabernet was picked later in March. Cabernet and Shiraz parcels were fermented separately in stainless steel vertical fermenters for 4-6 days at around 26°C, then pressed at 1 baume via screw press into stainless steel and left to ferment until dry. Each wine was then racked off gross lees onto French oak chips to complete malolactic fermentation. Once secondary fermentation was complete the wine was clarified and blended.

 

Our Cabernet Shiraz is a blend of smooth Cabernet Sauvignon and spicy Shiraz with wild berry aromas with hints of vanillin oak. A perfect match with barbecued meats, pasta or simply by itself.
