We have been making a bit of Shiraz for the bulk market for the last couple of years but have decided to keep it ourselves. Making our wines affordable has been a guiding tenant over the years but doing things natural comes at a cost. This wine isn’t natural, but it is ours, processed off site in a larger facility. Same beautiful fruit, same love, just aimed at a price point we simply can’t do by hand. The cooler vintage was ideal for our sort of Shiraz with 10% whole bunch inclusion to freshen things up. While some barrel maturation has added a balanced oak aspect.
