Vinification
Fermented in static fermenters at controlled temperatures to retain the varietal aromatics. Once complete the wine is left for 7–10 days on skins to aide in the extraction of soft
fleshy tannins and build wine structure. French & American oak has been used sparingly to ensure maximum fruit expression is retained in the final wine.

wa"Eucalypt, rhubarb, and boysenberry aromas appear on the nose of the 2016 Shiraz. It's medium to full-bodied, with the supple tannins and crisp acids expected in this sort of wine. Easy to drink and priced for a crowd. - Joe Czerwinski"

Beverage Tasting Institute "Deep garnet purple color. Bold aromas of menthol lozenge, chocolate, nougat, honey, blueberry pie and peppercorns with a supple, vibrant fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, pure spicy berry and sandalwood accented finish. A fun, flashy bbq wine."
