Winemakers Notes: Extremely low crop levels and ideal growing conditions ensured the 2012 vintage was ideal for the development intense varietal characters. Weather conditions were very mild day time temperatures during January, February and March with the nights averaging below 10 degrees all conductive to exceptional flavour development and the retention of natural acidity in the fruit. The Winemaker’s Selection Shiraz is made in a Syrah wine style that expresses the terroir and the cool climatic conditions of Woodside in the Adelaide Hills. The Hills climate and the use of lower temperature controlled ferments, fruit driven Rhone yeasts combine to provide elegance, structure and primary fruit that fully expresses the individual terroir of our vineyard.
