Winemaking Description: Following in the tradition, the Indra Block delivers another wine of exceptional quality. The fruit was hand picked from the low yielding Lethbridge Vineyard, Indra block and underwent a cold soak for 5 days. Natural fermentation ensued and was complete within 10 days. The wine was transferred to 100% new French oak and underwent a natural malo-lactic fermentation the following spring (October). The wine was racked once and then estate bottled in March 2012.
Tasting Notes: An elegant Shiraz from a cool vintage, the wine exhibits a spicy nose with sour plum and black olive character. A beautifully structured wine with fine grained tannins, excellent length and persistence but will need 5 years before it starts to drink at its peak.
