Pretty Good

Vibrant red colour with a subtle tinge of purple. Initial aromas are of delicate perfume and peppery spice typical of superior cool climate Shiraz aged in top quality French oak. The palate has a smooth velvety tannin structure, compelling firmness and tremendous depth of red fruit flavour, with dark plum, cherry and black berry characters predominant as a young wine.

WINERY INFORMATION

Vineyard

2013 was a warm and dry season at High Eden with low to moderate yields across our mature Chardonnay blocks. The weathered 500 million year old micacceous meta-sandstone bedrock that forms the ridge of Mountadam was once an ancient shorelines and has produced quartz rich, acidic soils with little water holding capacity. Small and regular irrigation was critical through the ripening period of 2013 to maintain the vines in their best condition. Three of the four clonal components of this wine are from the oldest (38years) and highest elevated plantings of the estate at 550m. Only the 29 year old II0V1 component comes from a distinct quartz outcrop planted at 470m.

Winemaking

The Patriarch grapes were hand harvested on the 30th of March and manually graded across our sorting table before being gently crushed. Fermentation was undertaken using our own natural cultured yeast in unique 8t submerged cap fermenters. The juice was run off daily into a large open tub and then recombined with the skins over 14 days, until fermentation was complete. The skins were then allowed to sit undisturbed in contact with the young wine for another 5 weeks. Malolactic fermentation occurred with our own cultured strain and the wine was aged in new French barriques from the Le Bertranges, Allier and Troncais forests for 2 years.
