The Brunette 2013 Magnum

Shiraz

The fruit for The Brunette comes from a truly unique vineyard site on top of Moppa Hill, on a moderate incline ranging from around 340m to 380m altitude and faces east, perfect for catching the morning sun. Planted with 1654 Shiraz clone to approximately 2 hectares. The soils are lean red clays with seams of ironstone —brunette in colour — which produce optimum conditions for dark, savoury fruits and fine, structured tannins. Numbered magnum; only 50 bottled.

Tasting Notes

Grapes vary in flavour/tannin from top to bottom of the vineyard. Ripening is about 2 weeks later than 'The Blonde' vineyard and always seem to retain lower pH and high TA comparatively. 10% whole-bunches are retained in open fermenters with daily foot-treading and hand-plunging for up to 3 weeks. Matured for 15-18 months in smaller French oak of which up to a third can be new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered under stelvin capsule.
