2013 Michael Hall Barossa Valley Shiraz, Stone Well
The Triangle Block vineyard lies in Stone Well on the eastern edge of the Seppeltsfield sub-region. It has a gentle northerly aspect and is coloured terracotta red by the distinct, iron-rich soils over clay found in parts of the northern and western ridge Barossa.
Poor winter rains followed by a warm and dry summer ensured low yields and a very early season. Hand-picked on 15 February, wild yeast fermented, 15% whole bunch barrel ferment, 20 months in French oak (17% new, Saint Martin), unfiltered.
