The Contrarian 2012 Magnum

Shiraz

‘The Contrarian’ is the new entry level single vineyard Shiraz. The basic preface of the wine is to push traditional Barossan wine-making boundaries and provide a test-bed for other Shiraz based wines in the portfolio. Because of this, I have not settled on taking the fruit from a particular vineyard and instead will continue to source from a new sub-region each year. The 2010 came from Greenock and 2011 was taken from a vineyard high up in the sub-region of Marananga. I would like the wine to have lower than usual alcohol through earlier picking and show more stem and fruit tannin rather than oak derived tannin. It is this basic shift in structure and flavour profile that I feel leads to a better experience at the dinner table. ‘The Contrarian’ is a wine that goes against common thought. The 2012 is sourced from a vineyard near the town of Moculta in the Eden Valley.
