THIS VINTAGE HAS SOLD OUT!

The Wine
Showing a dense colour with a bright purple hue. Earthy dark berry aroma and
ripe mulberry fruit flavours on the palate. A difficult grape to grow but very
rewarding when we do! To be enjoyed with fuller flavoured meals and hard
cheese. Unfiltered!

Winemaking
Crushed and fermented in open 3 ton stainless steel fermentors and hand
plunged twice daily to maximize the extraction of flavour and colour from the
grape skins. Fermentation was 7 days with the wine remaining on skins
for a further 10 days prior to pressing. The finished wine was matured in a
mixture of French and American barrels for 12 months prior to being racked,
blended and bottled in October 2014.

Viticulture
Sourced from a single vineyard in the Glenrowan region of North East Victoria.
A variety that was a result of cross pollination of Peloursin and Syrah by the
French botanist Dr Francois Durif, first recognised in 1886.
