2015 Karrawatta Joseph Shiraz



Small berries, low yields and open bunches characterise the Shiraz grown on Christo’s Paddock. These old vines produce grapes with great flavour intensity and richness, which are hand-picked before being whole-bunch pressed. Once fermentation was complete the wine was pressed into a combination of new (40%) and old French oak barrels, where it matured for 18 months. Expect red and black berries, coffee and dark chocolate with a savoury edge and soft round tannins providing great structure and length.

My Karrawatta ‘Burnfoot’ Vineyard is located on premium dirt, just off the Angas River, in the Langhorne Creek Wine Region. The vines were planted in 1989 into soil that does not get flooded and hence our vines tend not to be over vigorous. The soil type is a free draining thick brown loamy sand over a red brown sandy clay loam, calcareous at depth. All vines are detail hand pruned with love. Vine growth is in perfect balance, inputs are minimal and the Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon from these old vines is arguably some of the most beautiful from the region. This fruit is highly sort after and very few site's can produce fruit of this quality, where berries are small and bunches are open. Only a small volume of water is applied during the growing season and with terroir of this site.
