TASTING NOTES
A vibrant dark red hue, fine bead, attractive fresh black pepper, plums and blackberry aromas with similar black fruit character and a hint of spice, smooth, balanced and luscious. Serve chilled.

VINEYARD
Fruit sourced from our 41 year old 12 hectare Dry Grown Vineyard. Our old vines are not irrigated; something quite unusual in these days of mass commercial production. Having smaller fruit fosters an intensity of the flavour, with most of the colour and tannin of the grape being concentrated in or near the skin. The characteristically cool climate of the district ensures slow ripening of the grapes, which also allows for the development of rich flavour and quality grape juice. Grown on ancient gravely loams, our old vines are all cane pruned and yield 2 tonne per hectare. Galafrey harvest their grapes from mid-March to late April depending on the season.


VINTAGE COMMENTS

V18 started very quickly but with no desease or weather pressure we were able to have extra hang time for all wines especially reds resulting in higher than average alcohols and ripeness. The Great Southern area will be showing great ripeness and power not often seen in our wines. Look for great floral aromas in whites, intensity and power in reds.  


WINEMAKING
Mechanically harvested these dry, cool to mild climate grapes of the Great Southern region will produce classic Shiraz, wines with great depth of flavour and structure. Pick from two blocks, Old Vine Shiraz which is 35+ years old and young vines which ironically is 20+ years old. We endeavour through meticulous viticulture and wine production sympathetic to the vintage conditions to produce a Shiraz that will express varietal characters in tune with its sense of place. Kept on lees for 18 months and using Methode Traditionalle.
