Limited Two Shiraz 2016
Hand Picked | Basket Pressed
Limited Two Shiraz is a selection of the finest ‘Two Barrels’ producing a mere 800 bottles. The 2016 Limited Two Shiraz is the fourth bottling in 22 years; it sits alongside the 2004, 2008 & 2010. The fruit was handpicked from a low yielding, dry grown, hillside vineyard with an altitude of 335m. It is located on our original 1855 founded property in the Greenock hills, Barossa Valley.
The grapes were handpicked on the 27th of February, 100% de-stemmed and fully crushed berries transferred into a small 3 tonne open top fermenter. Fermentation and maceration of the skins lasted for 17 days. The ferment was hand plunged twice per day with a rack and return implemented daily.
