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.
