Wilton Hill 2017 Magnum

Shiraz

Wilton Hill has been a 15 year project to this point. An opportunity for us to reallyflex, show site and talk about what is really possible within our beloved Barossa.We feel the vineyard story and journey of this wine is worth telling.Notes on the Wilton Hill property:‘Wilton’ was an old town in Flaxman Valley and the vineyard was planted on thehill above the town, hence the property name. The property covers 250 acres. It wasoriginally part of the largest land-holding within Flaxman Valley, of approximately4000 acres, by the Pohlner family who were original 1852 settlers. The currentowners are the Mattschoss Family, 6th generation farmers of the Barossa.The property boasts 84 acres under vine, 8 varieties with 11 clones of Shiraz.Once a goldmine with 40 workers there are many natural springs and also ancientprotected Yacca plants, some up to 500 years old. The vineyards are farmedsustainably and use organic practices. The oldest vines are 106 years and a smallShiraz block planted in 1929 provides the fruit for HEAD Wines ‘Wilton Hill’Shiraz. 35% of HEAD Wines total production comes off the Wilton Hill property.The ‘Wilton Hill’ Shiraz sits at the top of the ‘Icon Series’ of HEAD Wines andrepresents less than 0.5% of total production. The inspiration behind the “WiltonHill” ambigram on our label is owed to this site's unique orientation atop theBarossa Ranges from where both the Barossa and Eden Valleys can be seen.The 2017 vintage of ‘Wilton Hill’ produced 568 bottles & 50 Magnums only.
