The Range

These back vintage All Saints Estate wines are special wines that are carefully cellared deep inside the castle and released only when they are at their peak for your drinking pleasure.

The Wine

A portion of the fruit was hand picked and added as a partial whole bunch fermentation. This adds lifted sweet berry fruit aromas and more body and complexity to the finish of the wine. A complex and refined wine, rich and intense but not heavy it is full of aromas of plum, dried herbs and spice with ripe dark berry-fruit flavours and fine structural tannins with incredible length.

Variety

Shiraz is Australia’s favourite red grape. It is most impressive in the Rhone Valley of France, where it makes wines so great that we borrowed not only the variety, but the name as well! What we left to the French was the techniques they use in the vineyard and cellars. We are now rediscovering these old ways of doing things.

Winemaking

Our aim is to produce a wine of finesse and subtlety and so the fruit was picked ripe, but no more. A portion of the front block was hand picked to allow for 10% whole bunch added to the fermenter. The balance was destemmed and crushed before fermentation in our old open concrete vats. After 24 months in French and American oak puncheons and barriques, 1/3 of which were new, the wine was bottled with minimal fining and filtration.

Food Matching

Great Shiraz from this region has lovely rich fruit and a characteristic mineral, briny element. This makes it a great match for locally reared premium Rutherglen lamb, perhaps roasted and stuffed or studded with herbs, garlic and pancetta.

Cellaring Potential

The long maceration makes for very stable tannins in a well-balanced wine. Also the fact that it is not excessively ripe and alcoholic gives the wine tremendous capacity to age. This Shiraz should improve for a decade or even more.

"A very complex, full-bodied shiraz, its bouquet with deep plum and blackberry fruits interwoven with savoury tannins; this is not a wine to be taken lightly, needing a minimum of 5 years, and hopefully 10, to state its case." Halliday Wine Companion, July 2015.
