Pretty Good

The fruit used for No.89 is from the 20 year old vines that exhibit powerful spices and peppery flavours – a representation of a classic cool area Shiraz. The oak adds complexity, but the intense fruit restrains and helps harmonise. The flavours are vibrant and follow the aroma of spicy fruit characters. There is 1% Viognier co-fermented in this wine and it contributes a very subtle softening of the cool climate spice. Soft fine tannins combine with great length of flavour to give a wine of youth that will repay cellaring.

No89 fruit is selected from blocks 1, 3 and 5, and is hand harvested. On reception at the winery the fruit was inspected for quality and hand sorted. Up to 30% of fruit was whole bunch fermented to give spice. Grapes were fermented in open top vats with cap management scheduled daily to attain the perfect balance of tannins and extraction. Following fermentation wines were left on skins, for extended maceration, to impart a savoury edge. The wine was pressed from its skins and sent to mature in oak; 60% new French oak along with 40% 1 and 2 yr. old oak.
