From 24yo vines in the Mount McKenzie vineyard at 380m elevation; frosts reduced yields by 30% this vintage. 30% whole bunches, basket pressed. 12,000 bottles. A young, fruity and precocious take on Eden Valley shiraz, brimming with strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb and even a rosehip lift. Oak appropriately tones structure without thwarting primary-fruit thrust. Tangy acidity infused in the cool nights of '20 amplifies grainy tannins. Authenticity and integrity, if not the polish that a longer spell in oak might have afforded – but at this price, I'm not complaining.
