2014 Archetype Shiraz
96 points - James Halliday's Wine Companion
From a single vineyard on Bayliss rd in the Sellicks Foothills sub region of McLaren Vale. Matured in 75% new French oak, only 4 barrels produced. Crushed and destemmed, no adjustments.11 day ferment, then basket pressed to tank to settle off solids, 3 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.
