CBD Single Vineyard Shiraz

Old Vine Shiraz from the heart of the township of Coonawarra, it demonstrates the diversity of wines and styles that can be found along the red Terra Rossa strip.

The palate has ripe plum fruits with layers of spice and chocolate, with medium weight but a juicy mid-palate, finishing long with velvety tannins and acidity.

THE STORY

Behind the name

This diminutive vineyard is situated within the Coonawarra township ‘CBD’ (Central Business District) and was planted in the early 1950s. The vines thrive on the purest red Terra Rossa soil in the region.

Despite being dry-grown, it flourishes each year with a vigour demonstrating that despite being an old vine, its roots reach deep into the aquifer below.

THE STORY

Winemaking

The ‘CBD’ Shiraz Old Vines are situated in the Coonawarra township and receive extra care, with hand-pruning and picking. A small quantity, less than three tonnes, is picked each year and hand-tended to for all of its production.

Fermented in one-tonne bins using natural yeasts, this wine was hand plunged three times per day for a more traditional and delicate extraction of colour and flavour.

Once primary fermentation was complete the parcel was basket pressed and filled into a small selection of second use larger volume 500L oak. Matured for 20 months before, the wine was racked and fined bottled with little alterations and minimal handling.
