2015 Breaking Ground Shiraz Mourvedre
Our Breaking Ground Range celebrates our focus on innovation and features pioneering and alternative wines and wine styles.
These two varieties are interplanted and are picked together as a field blend. It is the only Shiraz Mourvedre made in the Hunter. At an average yield of one tonne per acre the fruit for this wine was intensely concentrated in flavour. The Mourvedre tends to ripen 2 weeks after the Shiraz resulting in a wine that tends to be a riper style than usual for the Hunter. The grapes for this wine were picked from a single block off the old Saxonvale vineyard growing on the red volcanic soil of the Fordwich Sill.
