2015 Sacred Ground Shiraz
This special vineyard is hailed as ‘Sacred Ground’ amongst the St Hallett family for its richness, depth and complexity.
A short winter and warm dry spring got the growing season off to an early start with mild days. A well timed rain in mid-January brought relief to dry vineyards and rainwater tanks alike after many months of no rain. The early start and ideal ripening conditions after the rain brought on vintage at a frantic pace, with all the 2015 wines showing abundant aromas and flavours.
The Fromm vineyard parcel destined for this wine was fermented for 8 days at 22-24 degrees. Post fermentation the wine was matured in seasoned American and French Oak for 12 months before being blended and bottled.
