Biological ageing takes place under a film of flor yeast during a phase known as sobretablas. Oxidative ageing is a result of the action of oxygen inside old American oak sherry cask and the traditional, yet dynamic system of criaderas and soleras. Oxidative ageing is the predominat process in the production of this wine and onsequently defines its character.

The area ranges from soft rolling hills to higher hills toward the Coastal Mountain range in the east. The poor, sandy loam soils are alluvial in origin, relatively shallow and very permeable, resulting in yields which are generally low in comparison with other Chilean valleys. Temperatures are much cooler here, allowing the grapes to ripen very slowly to produce rich flavoured wines. The Casablanca Valley is influenced by the Pacific Ocean and the Humboldt Current, resulting in constant humidity and average temperatures of 25ºC in the summer and 14ºC in the winter. The spring of 2015 was cooler than average and the relative humidity was higher. This caused uneven budbreak and later ripening. An increase in rainfall forced an earlier harvest in April. The grapes are harvested into 400-kg bins and transported to the winery, where first the clusters and then the grapes (after destemming) are selected on a conveyor belt. Once in the tank, they undergo a pre-fermentation maceration for 3 days, followed naturally by alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts. During this stage, temperatures are kept at 24-26º C, with a gentle pump-over routine. A 2-3-day post-fermentation maceration is then carried out. Malolactic fermentation occurs spontaneously in stainless steel tanks and barrels. The wine is filtered through 1-micron membranes and then bottled. 70% of the wine is aged for 6 months in French oak barrels.Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans.This wine is Organic.
Bright, aromatic and juicy on the nose with just a touch of naughty bacon fat. True to the varietal, the
tiny proportion of Malbec in this blend gives a flowery perfume. This vintage is dangerously drinkable Shiraz due to its fine, bright fruit and soft silky elegance.Drink with Moroccan lamb tagine, roast vegetables and hard cheeses.Suitable for vegansSuitable for vegetariansOur Shiraz is sourced from ancient Victorian soils in order to achieve a wine with greater finesse,
purity and structure as well as typical eucalypt flavours and saline finish associated with the area.
Picked at night and crushed within an hour of picking before being sent to the fermentation tanks. The
Shiraz grapes were fermented in temperature-controlled tanks maintained at 22 - 25ºC to avoid
extracting any harsh tannins, with the fermentations pumped over to extract good colour. 20% of the
final blend is barrel aged. The winemaker also added 5% Malbec at the end of the whole process - a
sneaky technique that gives a mulberry fruit twist on the finish.
