Upon obtaining optimal ripeness, the most outstanding rows of the old vine Wilgha Shiraz block were harvested and transported directly to the winery. Here the fruit underwent a controlled cold soak to achieve maximum colour and flavour extraction. Fermentation was conducted in 2 tonne open fermenters with regular hand plunging of the cap. To promote the integration of fruit and oak flavours, the wine was drained to French oak barriques for completion of fermentation. Only the best barrels are selected for final blending and subsequent bottling of the Wilgha Shiraz.
