Heritage Label Old Vine Shiraz 2014
Tasting Notes

The resulting Shiraz is full of soft, dark cherry fruit with rich notes of dark chocolate and subtle oak. The palate is textured and layered, with the dark berry fruit aromas again coming to the fore. The palate has a long plush, elegant finish.

 

Winemaking

The hand-picked grapes were destemmed, but not crushed, and spent seven days on skins in an open fermenter with twice daily hand-plunging and gentle pump-overs of the cap to extract colour, flavours and tannins. This was followed by careful basket pressing and maturation in a combination of American and French oak barrels for 18 months prior to bottling.

In keeping with our non-interventionist winemaking style we have neither fined nor filtered this wine and as a result decanting is recommended. 

For our Old Vine Shiraz we selected grapes from the Hage and Gobell families’ vineyards in Nuriootpa and Stonewell sub-regions respectively.
