K&L Notes

Wild yeast, 22% whole bunches, unfined and unfiltered. Shiraz grown in the Stonewell, Eden Valley and Moppa sub-regions. It’s definitely one for the whole bunch brigade. It might only make up 22% of the mix, but the influence is clear and relatively dangerous. Needless to say, it had me more or less swooning from the outset. Nuts, herbs, woodsmoke, strings of greenery – it’s all there. Of course, and all-importantly, there’s a fresh burst of black cherry and blackberry-like fruit flavour too; it has the style, but it also has the substance. Whether or not you think this wine takes things too far will depend on your view of the bunchy style. There’s a screw of dry, slightly bitter, tannin here too, compounding the wine’s in-your-face nature. Personally I think it’s a stand-out red, particularly after a stint in the decanter.

    OH MY WORD, this is a tasty, tasty Shiraz. Made from grapes from cooler sites, there is nothing but finesse, juicy notes, subtle minerality, and crisp dark fruits here. The hand-picked grapes are a revelation here as much of Oz is machine harvested because their innovative tech is often used in the vineyards. The gentle touch with the grapes is obvious, giving a vibrant and fresh mouthfeel. The inclusion of whole cluster gives more texture and structure to this wine and the unfiltered sediments mean it will age beautifully. This is one of the better Shiraz's I've come across in Oz and I sincerely hope I don't buy it all before the customers have a chance to try it.
