The 2018 Barossa Shiraz was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of color, flavor and tannin. The Shiraz was fermented in open fermenters and matured with moderate French oak influence.
The 2018 Shiraz - blended from across the entire Barossa, but with an emphasis on the valley's western ridge, is what the winery refers to as its "village" Shiraz. Boysenberry and mulberry notes predominate, seasoned with a bit of cedar and vanilla. Medium to full-bodied, it's supple and immediately accessible, but with a bright, crisp finish.
