Vintage SV Shiraz 2010

Fortified Vintage Port | Basket Pressed | Wild Yeast Ferment

The first release of our fortified collection, this Vintage SV (single vineyard) Shiraz is sourced from Block 6, located on the eastern slopes of Moppa Hill.
The grapes were hand picked on the 1st April at a Baume of 16.5; de-stemmed, 100% berries crushed and placed into a small 3 tonne open top fermenter. Fermentation was started with wild yeast and after 6 days on skins the desired Baume of 6.05 was reached. A mathematical calculation is used to add the desired amount of aged brandy spirit to make the fortified Vintage Port.

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’.
