Silken Beastie Shiraz
Barossa 2017
 
Free your mind from stereotypes of the past, be willing to give things another go and imagine the beauty and subtlety that can be borne of an otherwise hostile environment. Not afraid to do the same ourselves, it's taken a second incarnation before we were convinced that we had captured the real beauty of the Barossa.
 
Vintage Conditions
2017 was defined by the very wet winter conditions that preceded it and by the cool, unpredictable and sporadically wet vintage conditions. Careful viticulture with restricted yields and open canopies were essential to healthy development. A late season, up to 6 weeks later than 2015, resulted in wines of purity and tension.

Winemaking
Drawing on fruit from Ebenezer, Kalimna and Koonunga regions of north west Barossa, we pick low yielding fruit on the way up rather than the way down. Wild, partial whole bunch ferments, gentle extraction and sensitive use of oak have resulted in a wine that is both complex and concentrated yet pleasingly light on its feet.
