Details

"This Shiraz comes from our oldest vineyard, planted in 1974. Range is only produced in years when the fruit from this site looks quite exceptional so is kept separate and is made as a single vineyard wine.


The slightly more fertile soils of Range block result in larger vine leaf area: fruit weight ratio, and more powerful expression of Shiraz relative to our Winery blocks. Considered a classic season, the 2012 wines are a pure expression of variety and site. Grapes hand-picked March 22.


Whole bunch fermentation, indigenous yeast and careful maturing of wine in French oak puncheons with the aim of telling the story of site and season as authentically as possible. Bottled Feb. 2014


Ripe field fruits, some evocative savoury tones and subliminal oak; this archetypal Range has the structure to age well or enjoy now with hearty winter dishes."
