Growing Conditions: The Shiraz grapes used to make this wine were grown at our Heathcote vineyard in Central Victoria. The fruit was harvested in February and spent 12 months in old American oak before being bottled for its second fermentation.
Winemaker: Geoff Alexander
Winemaking notes: Following this fermentation, it spent 12 months resting on lees (dead yeast cells) to add further complexity. It was then disgorged, liqueured and recorked, all these processes taking place in the original bottle – i.e. traditional method. It has an alcohol of 13.5%, a pH of 3.56, and an acid level of 6.0 g/L.
