  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Shiraz from Block 19 was de-stemmed and mechanically sorted with 50% whole berries retained. The remaining berries were lightly broken and fruit was placed in small open-top fermenters. After a few days, we cold-soaked and allowed wild fermentation to occur. The wine was carefully basket pressed after 10 - 12 days on skins. No additives were used throughout the entire production. Bottled in May 2018, after completing malolactic fermentation. No fining occurred, just filtration.

    2018 was a textbook growing season with good winter rains, and favourable weather conditions during a very mild spring. We had a generally dry summer, which led to earlier than expected picking dates, especially with lower than average yields. By the end of February and early March, the Autumnal nights got quite cool, enabling the flavour ripeness to catch up with the sugar.

    It’s a medium bodied, fresh, fruit driven wine that is delicious enjoyed as a young wine. With that in mind, we do have PF shiraz back to our first vintage of 2013 that is still showing some of lovely vibrant characters.

  • REVIEWS

    'This is an especially good release of this highly likeable shiraz. It’s so vibrant, has such good volume, and has such a good refreshment factor. Wins all the way along. Plums, cherries and cloves, a spot of hay, florals maybe. It slips down a treat. It’s a ‘more please’ wine.'
    90 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

    'Ticks all the philosophical boxes including using wild yeast, 50 per cent whole berries, unfiltered and as untouched as possible, Offering a mild mid-palate tannin profile and, with it, an easy and even shiraz that continues its strong commitment since 2013 to this style.'
    Tony Love, Adelaide Advertiser
