Shiraz

The unique style of Hunter Valley Shiraz has worldwide recognition for its soft savoury medium bodied characters. We have close to 30 hectares of old vine shiraz which produces at around one tonne to the acre. We generally pick it all together and drain off 20 % to make our rose which then concentrates the balance of our Shiraz. Our Margan Shiraz is matured in 4-5 year old oak barriques that soften the wine without adding oak flavour and tannin. This allows the wine to concentrate on its unique Hunter Valley flavour and tannin structure. Typically medium bodied with savoury spice and long soft tannins. The Aged Release is only produced in the very best vintages and is a concentrated version with lots of tannin to help the ageing process and new French oak maturation whilst our White Label Shiraz uses stems and new French oak for added texture and tannin.

Ripasso is the Italian term used in reference to the re-passing of a wine from one ferment over the skins of another. In our case we have passed some of our 2014 vintage shiraz from our 40 year old Timbervines vineyard over the skins of a number of different varieties from the other great vintages. During this second fermentation the shiraz picks up many different and complex characters from the secondary fermentation. The mystery for the drinker is to figure out what skins we have used for the re-fermentation.

Consistently year to year our BC4 block produces a juicy, fruit-forward style of Shiraz with plush purple fruits and soft tannins. In 2018 we decided to bottle a small parcel of this block as a single vineyard, single block wine to capture the vibrancy of fruit that the BC4 block produces.
