92 points – Halliday Wine Companion

Shiraz grown in cool-climates such as the Adelaide Hills is beginning to establish a name for a style that displays elegance, subtle richness and savoury characters.  Our Woodlands Ridge Vineyard in Kenton Valley is a perfect site for growing Shiraz in the Adelaide Hills and allow for the crafting of a wine with elegance, finesse and developed ripe characters while retaining typical cool-climate characteristics.

Viticulture

The 2016 season was a warm, dry and a relatively early ripening year with low yields.  The grapes were harvested in two batches towards the middle of March well before the beginning of the autumn rains.

 

Winemaking

Winemaking responsibilities rest with Mark Kozned plus the crew at Revenir Winery with special focus from Chris Parsons.  All our wines are made at our Revenir winery located in the Adelaide Hills. The ferment took place in a mix of 10 tonne fermenters.  Cap management and colour extraction was managed through a combination of cap plunging and juice pump-overs. The final wine exhibits a deep red-brick colour with purple hues on the edge. There is a rush of red fruits and black pepper aromas on the nose. The palate is rich and spicy with sweet cherries, blackberries, red raspberry, violet and sage characters which are all balanced with the textured tannins and supported by the judicious use of French oak. The wine is ready to drink now or will cellar well and reach its full potential in 7 to 10 years.
