2015 Blind Corner Field Blend

Blind Corner Field Blend

Situated at the bottom of the hill on the more generous soils.  This block is dry-grown and predominately Shiraz, however one lonely row of Viognier is right in the middle of it all.

The name of this wine is due to the two grape varieties within the block which are grown together, and are fermented together.  Smooth and slippery and medium bodied, it shows an elegance and depth that is atypical of other wines I have made.

When harvested, the row of viognier is hand-picked separately and spread evenly between the picking bins of Shiraz

The grapes are foot-crushed in small half-tonne ferments and hand plunged up to 3 times a day

Before ferment is complete, the wine is gently basket-pressed to seasoned french oak for 10 months.

It is then settled out in tank prior to bottling, where it goes to bottle with only sulphites added and stays in bottle for 9 months before release

Ingredients: Grapes, sulphites
Residual Sugar: <1g/L
