Season: 2010 saw the vintage too cool to produce our Single Vineyard “Whispering Hill” Shiraz, thus the premium parcels of fruit went into this blend, increasing its value. A cooler moderate summer allowed slow ripening conditions while retaining high natural acidity. Flavour development was good with a natural acid balance. The
season finished slightly cooler, resulting in clean, crisp and elegant white wines.

Vinification: Picked at optimum ripeness from the ‘Whispering Hill’ vineyard, the fruit is then de-stemmed but not crushed. Cold macerated with a moderate ferment, yeasts are introduced to increase aromatics and texture. Following fermentation and extended maceration, the wine has been matured in new and old French oak barriques increasing texture.

Perfect Accompaniments
