An unusually late growing season, with some notable challenges. A cooler than average summer resulted in a delayed start to harvest. Luckily, some classic autumnal sunshine arrived in late March, which provided perfect ripening conditions for the reds. The Shiraz fruit was harvested in excellent condition, retaining pure, intense flavours and finely woven tannins.
