Grey Label Shiraz was sourced from vineyards ranging in altitudes from about 50m near the coast to 200m where McLaren Vale merges with the Adelaide
Hills. The region mostly spans two basins of ancient bedrock layered with sediments laid down by advances and retreats of the sea over the past 45
million years. Soil types vary from sands, yellow clays, and red and black loams through to ironstone.
Harvested at optimum flavour ripeness, fruit was crushed and fermented in small open-top fermenters. Plunging and gentle pumping over were utilised to
optimise flavour, colour and tannin extraction, allowing for richness and fruit depth while keeping tannins plush. Some parcels completed fermentation in
barrel, integrating oak characters and contributing to mid-palate texture and complexity, while others were left on skins until dry to lengthen the finish.
Deep crimson. A complex layered nose of fragrant blue and black berry fruits with hints of dark chocolate and subtle biscuity oak. Full-bodied with a generous flesh of dark berried fruit with notes of liquorice, dark chocolate and subtle oak. Plush and creamy, the palate is lengthened by fine acid and a velvety tannin structure
