Shiraz is typically the first to ripen and was open top fermented alone, with co-fermentation for the later ripening Grenache and Mourvedre. Both parcels were transferred separately to older French oak puncheons. The Shiraz was later added to the blend to enrich and balance the colours, aromas and flavours. Shiraz offers structure with black pepper and richness, Mourvedre gives earthiness and liquorice with Grenache offering roundness to palate and blue fruits.
