WINE­MAKER Paul Evans How do you ap­proach the mak­ing of this shi­raz?

This re­serve shi­raz has been made in the vine­yard; bunch se­lected at ve­rai­son, har­vested by hand at peak flavour, min­i­mal wine­mak­ing han­dling, and then aged in our best oak for two years. It’s a prime ex­am­ple of what this vine­yard site can achieve.
