Clayfield Thomas Wills Shiraz 2012

$35.00 inc. GST

The fruit for the 2012 Clayfield ‘Thomas Wills’ Shiraz was grown at our Moyston vineyard. The vineyard has slight variations in soil composition between the two blocks which result in differing water availability and plant vigour. Importantly our Moyston site ripens relatively late due to the proximity to the Grampians and the cool evening temperatures we experience during the ripening period. These factors help maximise the colour and spicy regional character. Fermentation is done in temperature controlled stainless steel open fermenters regularly plunged gently by hand in the traditional method, then followed by pressing in our veteran and trusty hand operated basket press ensuring that the tannins are firm but not too aggressive. This wine was matured in American and French oak hogheads for 18 months prior to blending and bottling.
