TreatmentFamily traditional responsible farming methods with a diet of composts, native grasses & flora as ground cover, low water input and natural sprays for diseases. Made via a mixture of whole berry and 25% whole bunch natural vineyard yeast ferment in small open top fermenters, soft pump overs, basket pressed into seasoned 500lt French oak barrels and bottled unfiltered.
VintageDry winter & spring rainfalls, but with the rains we received it fell at critical moments which the site showed a healthy canopy heading into a hot December summer. Late January and February provided some relief with a good rain event leading into March harvest to produce a beautifully complex & deeply flavoured shiraz.
Tasting NotesPerfumed violets, spice and black cherry on the nose. Blackberry and spice with super fine tannins on a long elegant palate. Great example of Barossa hills fruit. A lovely bistro table wine.
StoryIn the far reaches of the Barossa – the furthest to the South East as can be, when the sun sets, and the full moon rises, a cold calm descends on the undulating landscape. A vineyard grows here in the silence of the night, nurtured by Earth’s critters and the magical moon and sunshine. This sacred ground, this mystic park, produces an exotic Shiraz that’s mouth filling, oh so plush and so perfect on a many starry moonlit night.
