From the Hickinbotham and Gateway Vineyards; 85% destemmed, 15% whole bunches; 5-day cold soak; wild ferment; basket pressed to French puncheons (40% new). A first class example of McLaren Vale shiraz, with remarkable articulation of black fruits, licorice and bitter chocolate supported and lengthened by positive fine-grained fruit and oak tannins.
