Angus Vinden:

"All three wine were sourced from from the Howard family Somerset Vineyard where I once worked; I know this vineyard almost as well as our own. It is located on a Hillside on Oakey Creek Rd in Pokolbin. The property is owned by my mentor Glen Howard, he is the 6th Generation to work the property. I separated the three aspects of the vineyard; Easterly, Northerly and Westerly. Each block was picked, fermented and vinified separately, however made in the same way.

 

The fruit for each Shiraz was cold soaked, fermented in open concrete fermenters with wild yeast, hand plunged, basket pressed and aged in French oak for 14 months. The wines were only racked once and were aged in second use 500L Puncheons. Each wine is limited to 641 bottles and is unfined, unfiltered and gravity fed to bottle. Drink any time over the next 10+ years."
