Just one block of low-yielding Shiraz vines was selected for this vintage of the Dairy Block, which grows next to the cellar door and enjoys the afternoon sun until late in the day. Bunches were hand-picked and gently pressed in order to retain vibrancy of the natural berry flavours. The wine was aged for 18 months in a combination of 30% new and 70% old French oak barrels. This is a medium- bodied cool climate Shiraz with concentrated white pepper spice, plum and cherries, cedar oak and velvety soft tannins.
