- Winemaking Notes
Shiraz, home grown on the Chapel Hill vineyard. A blend of the Hill Block, Retreat Block and Road Block. 100% French Oak, 100% Hogsheads (300L) for 12 months.
- Growing Conditions
Heavy winter rains filled the soil profile and set the vines up well for the season. Ideal growing conditions through spring encouraged a healthy, balanced canopy.
A comparatively cool and dry February and March allowed the vines to ripen at a steady pace, developing beautifully supple tannins at moderate sugar levels whilst retaining bright fruit flavours.
