This wine comes from my block next to our old windmill and has always been known as the Windmill Block.
Fruit sourced from a single dry grown vineyard in our north eastern section of the vineyard with an elevation of 455m with a sandy loam and clay soil structure. This small 2.5acre block, produces a lifted elegant style shiraz with flavours of liquorice, raspberry and herbs. The tannins are light but linger on the palate. The 2017 Vintage was a mild long vintage with cooler conditions early in vintage before getting hotter prior to harvest. Aged for 9 months in 30% new and old French oak.
