2009 Michael Hall Barossa Valley Shiraz, Stone Well

2009 Michael Hall Barossa Valley Shiraz, Stone Well

The Triangle Block vineyard lies in the Stonewell Valley on the eastern edge of the Seppeltsfield sub-region. Its gentle northerly aspect is coloured terracotta red by the distinct, iron-rich soils over clay found in parts of the northern Barossa. It is managed with minimal chemical inputs and is in conversion to biodynamic viticulture.

Fair winter rains led into a cool spring, hot summer and mild March. Hand-picked on 10 March from rows 1-27. Wild yeast ferment, pressed to barrel, 21 months in French oak barrels of which 60% new (Francois Freres), 18 months on lees, unfiltered.

Dried cranberry, red currants, jus, Génépi, fine grained tannins. Worth the wait.
