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.

HEAT POLICY

Wine is heat sensitive. During the warmer months we reserve the right to hold orders in instances of extreme heat, until there is a clear path of non-extreme temperatures between us and you. All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
