A deep bright inky crimson red, the nose shows fragrant, ripe berry flavours lifted by dusty exotic spicy notes. There is generous complex fruit flavour on the front palate, leading seamlessly through to a very dry firm tannin finish. 14.5% Alc/vol
Fruit for this wine is grown in our mature, dry grown vineyard that yields just one tonne per acre. No artificial fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides were used.
Growing Conditions 2015 was a near text book growing season. Late summer rainfall followed by a heat wave, set the vintage in motion early, resulting in wines of distinct varietal definition. Our old dry-grown vines grew a wonderfully balanced crop with great flavour development, and potential for long lived wines.
Winemaking Our Peppertree Vineyard Shiraz has a component of whole bunch fermentation which gives a wonderful lifted perfume to the wine and helps with the tannin structure. The Shiraz is estate bottled after 18 months in French oak barrels.
