100% Shiraz from Eden Valley, Mclaren Vale, Barossa, Australia. Sustainable, Native Yeast, Vegan Friendly.
HISTORY: Joel Mattschoss' Eden Valley vineyard provides the majority of the fruit. This spectacular vineyard is planted on some of the most difficult, meagre soils of any we have seen. Littered with boulders composed of ironstone and pink quartz, it is a truly challenging site. Vineyards are trellised, cordon trained and spur pruned.
As we like to pick “on the way up” our season began quickly with a number of varieties ripening at once but then progressed nicely, with the ability to pick when it suited given the settled weather.
ABOUT: As life-forces stir, a connection is born and a personality created. The Quickening celebrates the vivifying power of nature. This is the Barossa reimagined. An exuberant outpouring of energy, captured within a sculptured framework that reflects the rugged yet beautiful landscape of its conception.
VINIFICATION: This wine is all about great fruit, picked at the right time. Frequent vineyard walks determines exactly the right time for this, when the fruit is full of energy. Wild Fermented with ambient yeasts, using some whole bunch inclusion play their role in ensuring that this wine is full of bright, fleshy fruit with great texture and spice. Aged in French oak for 8 months prior to bottling.
TASTING NOTES: A deliciously vibrant style of Barossa Shiraz with succulent Raspberry and Blackcurrant fruit, with hints of Spice and Elegant, Glossy texture.
