Old Vine 2020

Shiraz

Very small parcels of fruit from vineyards up to 100 years old are hand-picked, fermented with some whole-bunches and blended to make this traditional Barossan wine. A blend of an original RWT vineyard in Nuriootpa planted 1890 and a vineyard in Stone Well (near The Blonde) planted in 1970. We do not push the ripeness here and instead ferment with 10% whole bunch and a gentler extraction. Combine this with only 20% new Burgundian barriques for 12 months and the wonderful richness and sweetness of ‘Old Vine’ fruit remains in focus.

Tasting Notes

‘Deep and intense ruby-red hue. Mulberry, violets and pepper aromas. Dark fruits drive the palate, some savoury dark-mineral notes are seen along with a hint of exotic spice but it’s the intense fruit that is the star here. Fine and supple tannins guide it to the long finish. A lot to like here and a great example of the purity of fruit the region can present.’ 93Pts
