McLaren Vale 2014
From a single vineyard on Bayliss Road in the Sellicks Foothills sub region of McLaren Vale.
Matured in 75% new French oak, only four barrels produced. Crushed and destemmed and no adjustments. 11-day ferment, then basket pressed to tank to settle off solids, three days later racked to barriques.
Our Archetype Shiraz is our attempt at bridging the gap between classic and modern McLaren Vale styles: concentrated and powerful yet restrained. Intense but still elegant.
