Region
Hilltops, NSW
Vineyard Notes
The Hilltops cool climate wine region is centred on the town of Young in south west NSW.  The vineyard is situated at 500 metres above sea level with fertile and mineral rich decomposed granite soil. The viticultural techniques are aimed at producing low yielding vines resulting in complex characters and excellent concentration. The vines are 15 years old and the Shiraz clone is known as Penfolds SA 1564.
Winemaking Notes
This single vineyard parcel was destemmed only, preserving as many whole berries as possible for ferment.  It spent two days soaking on skins before commencing fermentation with a cultured yeast in a sweeping arm fermenter. The fermentation process lasted another 5 days between 22 and 26 degrees. The wine then spent 10 months in 12% new French oak adding complexity, texture and finesse. Cellar potential of 7+ years.
Awards
Gold Medal – Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge 2020
Deep crimson tinged with dark purple. Engaging nose intermixing red fruits, violet, liquorice and spice. Robust, heady, sun-kissed palate offering up lovely depth and satisfying intensity. Would sit comfortably alongside grilled meats.
Colour
Bright, deep red with youthful purple hues
Nose
Aromas of lifted red and dark berry fruits. Attractive freshness of fruit with subtle oak spice and hints of florals.
Palate
Immediately appealing medium-bodied cool climate Shiraz with great silky smooth tannin balance through the palate. The delicate and restrained use of french oak adds alluring complexity and generous texture. Highlighted with fruit characters of juicy dark berries and hints of white pepper. The lengthy and more-ish finish make this the quintessential expression of cool climate Shiraz.
