Tommy Shiller, a notorious wine grape grower of the Barossa Valley produced something special here is a very tough year. Super light, semi barrel fermented Syrah. 100% de-steamed berries were fermented in stainless steel tank with minimum allowable pump overs/punch downs. Free run was racked at 3 baume (minimal extraction) straight to 2 neutral French oak barrels for barrel fermentation. Skins were basket pressed straight to a similar barrel where she went through malo and slept. The result, a lean, approachable Barossa Shiraz without the dreaded over extraction.
