    Shiraz
A fragrant & spicy medium bodied wine with plenty of complexity. Aromas of earth & plums with a touch of black pepper & bay leaf spice. The palate shows savoury/briary flavours with a certain richness that are framed by fine silky tannins and a graphite minerality. Perfect partner to slow cooked lamb on a rainy night.

Hochkirch vineyard lies on a north facing slope 250 m. above sea level along an elevated plateau running southwest from Dunkeld at the foot of the Grampians in far south west Victoria. The vines are dry farmed (no irrigation) and no synthetic fungicides, pesticides or fertilisers are used; certified bio-dynamic by Demeter.

"A most versatile variety, Shiraz can produce greatness across a perplexing breadth of terroir. In our cold climate we sit on the edge of its climatic range and each year we are astonished at its expression of our place. Our 2003 crop was only half its usual low yield and only 100 cases have been produced. A cool rather wet spring and summer was followed by a beautiful mild autumn allowing slow ripening of the small crop. Handpicked on May 12, fruit was partially destemmed into small open fermenters with natural wild ferment in its own time and gentle hand plunging. After a long slow ferment, pressed and gravity transferred to small old oak, natural malolactic ferment occurred with the warmth and new life of spring. Falling bright with gravity our wines are neither fined nor filtered and in some years show an opaque richness as testament to this natural process. Bottled by hand using natural corks, our wine of course contains no animal products or GMOs." John Nagorcka - Hochkirch Winery, Tarrington VIC
