About:   100% Hazel’s Vineyard - certified biodynamic in 2020. Our southernmost vineyard characterised by coarse ironstone gravel loam soil, Southern Ocean breezes, a northerly aspect and plenty of Margaret River sunshine. 

Sourced from a single block of bio-dynamically grown Shiraz at Hazel's Vineyard. The fruit was hand harvested and a concrete fermenter was then filled to the brim with 80% whole bunch fruit. The fermenter was then sealed for several days to allow for carbonic maceration within the berries. Gentle extraction followed for 10 days. After pressing, the wine was aged in a single 2800L French Oak Cask for 9 months, before racking and a small sulphur addition. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration, ensuring a living reflection of a block we consider special and unique.

Tasting Notes:   A hyper-perfumed nose, with lifted lavender, dark liquorice and cinnamon spice entwined with a savoury note of olive tapenade and roasted nuts. The palate opens with black cherries, plums and a velvety mocha note, followed by pepper spice and fine tannins. A wine unlike any other in the region and a true reflection of the 'Syrah' style.
