Shiraz is a classic Hunter variety, reflecting the natural adaptability of the shiraz grapes to the new world and the Hunter in particular. Grown in red clay soil over limestone conglomerates, on a north east sloping hillside, the Tintilla Shiraz vines enjoys ideal growing conditions.
After a good growing season the night harvested grapes were cold soaked to extract maximum fruit and phenolics, then open fermented until almost finished fermentation. Fermentation is finished in New (about 25%) and old French and American oak barrels were used for malolactic fermentation and subsequent ageing. After 12 months in oak, the wine was bottled and stored before release.
