About

When a couple of tonnes of biodynamically farmed Shiraz from Mt Barker in the Hills was offered up to Gareth Belton in 2016, he jumped at the chance.

This was fermented as whole bunches and sent to bottle as naturally as possible. No fining, no filtration and no preservatives added along the way.

It’s an elegant, spicy, finessed style of Shiraz. Built on a lean frame but oozing charisma. Low intervention winemaking coming up trumps here. Beautiful wine all-round.

Only 100 dozen made.

What It Tastes Like

It’s cool, it’s slippery, it’s tucked in nicely. Hung meat and some savoury notes to the nose amongst a basket of berries and licorice all sorts. Blueberry and white pepper. Slinky, sandy tannins. Great flow and feel. Rustic but classy sort of sums it up.
