2015 Eperosa Magnolia 1896 Shiraz Barossa Valley – The Magnolia 1896 Shiraz is sourced from the oldest vines on our Magnolia Road vineyard planted in 1986. Two French oak 500L Puncheons (2 & 3 year old) make up this single block centenarian vine Shiraz. The vines grow on deep granitic sand over clay soils at an elevation of 315 metres. The block is run organically using only organic fertilisers and fungicide and the weeds controlled by mowing and mechanical knifing. The vines are detailed rod and spur pruned and they use shoot and bunch thinning to control yield and quality. The vines yielded 1.35t/Ac. All the fruit is handpicked and hand sorted prior to wild yeast fermentation. After 19 months the wine is gently hand racked from barrel with no fining or filtration before bottling.
The combination of organic farming, 119 year old vines and high end French oak has resulted in a wine of brilliant fruit purity and complexity with smokey, dark cherry and chocolate aromas accompanied by ultra fine tannins,
