2017 Heritage Series 'Hugh Reilly' Shiraz ~ Clare Valley
Winemaking & Viticulture |
This rich, full bodied Shiraz has been handcrafted from the most premium parcels of our estate vineyards which were planted in 1926 and are some of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in the Clare Valley wine region in South Australia.
These dry grown old vines have deep,strong roots which all the plant to access deeper moisture and more diverse nutirents and minerals. These vines are steady and reliable and less likely to be affected by adverse weather conditions, consistently producing small yields of top quality fruit year after year.
Our winemaker Justin Ardill uses traditional wine making techniques of open fermentation, hand plunging and maturation in French oak for 2 years to allow this quality fruit to truly shine.
The result is an exquisite wine showing the strength and depth of the old vines with lifted aromas of stewed plums and a palate showing layers of succulent ripe berries, chocolate and a hint of spice. The wine finishes with mocha, sweet vanilla, well integrated oak and smooth, velvety mouth feel with firm lingering tannins.
