Tasting Notes

Handpicked from vines planted in the 1890's in the Great Western region of Central Victoria. The Syrah vines are 'Old Best's' clone on the 'Concongella' soil profile (clay over ironstone) and are fermented as 50% whole bunches with indigenous yeasts and 40 day extended maceration. No acid, enzymes or additives other than a small amount of sulphur dioxide was used in production. The wine is then racked to 1 and 2 year old hogsheads and puncheons and left sur lees for 10 months before being gravity racked and bottled unfined and unfiltered. - Gary Mills

Ancient writings tell an endearing tale of Jamsheed, a Persian king who was said to be able to see his kingdom in a cup of wine, and whose fondness for fresh grapes lead him to store them in jars over winter where they would inevitably spontaneously ferment and be set aside as 'poison'. One of King Jamsheed's harem, despairing of frequent migraines, chooses to commit suicide by drinking from a poisoned jar. She wakes to find herself miraculously cured, informs her king who is most pleased and sets about making many jars of 'poison' and thus wine was discovered. - Gary Mills
