2015 Magnolia 1896 Shiraz

Magnolia Road, Vine Vale  Shiraz 100%

1227 bottles filled


The Magnolia 1896 Shiraz is sourced from the oldest vines on our Magnolia Road vineyard. Two French oak 500 litre Puncheons (2nd & 3rd fill) make up this single block Centenarian vine Shiraz. The vines grow on deep granitic sand over clay soils at an elevation of 315 metres. The block is run organically using only organic fertilisers and fungicides and the vineyard floor controlled by sheep, mowing and mechanical knifing. The vines are detailed rod and spur pruned and are shoot and bunch thinned to control yield and quality. The vines yielded 1.35t/Ac in the 2015 vintage. All the fruit is handpicked and hand sorted prior to wild yeast fermentation in an open fermenter and after 19 months the wine was gently hand racked from barrel with no fining or filtration before bottling. The combination of organic farming, 119 year old vines and high end French oak has resulted in a wine of brilliant fruit purity and complexity with smokey, dark cherry and chocolate aromas accompanied by ultra fine tannins,
