WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
The grapes for the 2012 Y Series Shiraz Viognier are sourced from our excellent resource of Shiraz and Viognier vineyards throughout South Australia. The grapes were fermented in both static and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and 3-5 days post ferment maceration has helped extract soft fleshy tannins and build an elegant structure.
Vintage 2012 could be summed up as a vintage without extremes. La Nina conditions moderated throughout 2011, leading to good soil moisture at the beginning of the growing season. Average temperatures through spring and early summer allowed the vines to flourish giving healthy balanced canopies and good fruit set. Mild conditions through January to March allowed the grapes to ripen in ideal conditions producing grapes with outstanding depth of flavour
