  • XVIII - SHIRAZ 2015
    Regular price
    $499.00
    PRICE: $499
    Our XVIII Premium Shiraz is the epitome of Shiraz. A new and rare true fine wine experience that is uplifting through to the next day. It is the choice of sophisticated wine connoisseurs in a best of class red (certified bio-dynamic, organic, pesticide-free, 100% chemical free tested, vegan and no synthetic preservatives).
    While our entire vineyard is grown bio-dynamically and with minimal intervention, only the best rows of the best blocks of Shiraz are selected to create this iconic wine. Then once we get this special fruit into the winery, each step of the winemaking is carefully done by Winemaker Frank Bonic and his cellar.
    The grapes are harvested only in the very cool autumn mornings, then gently destalked and conveyed to the fermenting vessel. The freshly crushed grapes are held for 3-4 days of cold soaking. During this period, the natural indigenous micro-flora from the vineyard slowly begin to grow and initiate fermentation naturally with just the indigenous micro flora that lives on the skins of the grapes in our bio-dynamic pesticide free, fungicide free vineyard.
    Unlike white wines, Shiraz wine is fermented with the skins and seeds mixed in with the juice. The floating skins are plunged down into the fermenting juice many times during each day to ensure that all of the colour, flavour and tannin are gently and completely extracted into the liquid from the skins.
    The grape sugars are slowly converted into alcohol and a complete malo-lactic fermentation occurs every year. This fermentation occurs with specially selected Oaks prepared on special ways to add complexity and extra layers of flavours.
    For our XVIII Shiraz, when the fermentation is complete, rather than immediately pressing the skins and removing the fresh wine, we leave the newly fermented juice (young wine) gently resting with the skins and seeds for 3 months of ‘extended maceration’ to allow more colour and flavour to be extracted from the skins and for those tannins to polymerise and convert to a softer and more stable form. This extended maceration process is carefully managed to ensure the maximum colour, flavour and richness is achieved while simultaneously softening and stabilising the colour of the final wine. This complex process is but one of the special techniques used to create the rich creamy texture and luscious palate that is the hallmark of our great XVIII Shiraz.

    Tasting Summary:
    The first thing one notices is the intense red colour with slight garnet edges in the glass with ‘legs’ of wine and vapour coating the walls of the glass above the liquid. Dark plum, wild black cherry jam, and decadent mulberry are countered with seductive notes of vanilla oak, cloves, and cinnamon spice.
    Rich full bodied with loads of ripe dense blueberry, blackberry, and rhubarb with hints of and savoury spice. Rich ripe velvety tannins make this Shiraz what we call “sumptuously chewable” and provide the lead-in to its amazing lingering finish.

  • XVIII - CHARDONNAY 2017
    Regular price
    $277.00
    PRICE: $277
    Our XVIII Premium Chardonnay is the epitome of Chardonnay. While we nurture all of vineyard blocks, varieties and wines, our XVIII wines are the best in Class Chardonnay. While our entire vineyard is grown bio-dynamically and with minimal intervention, only the best rows of the best blocks of Chardonnay are selected to create this iconic wine. Then once we get this special fruit into the winery, each step of the winemaking is carefully done by Winemaker Frank Bonic and his cellar. Nothing is left to chance and yet at the same time the absolute minimum of intervention is used.
    The grapes are harvested only in the very cool autumn mornings, then gently pressed to yield their golden nectar. This cold juice is left to settle for 2 days, then racked off of the grape sediment and allowed to start fermentation naturally, with just the natural micro flora that lives on the skins of the grapes in our bio-dynamic pesticide free, fungicide free vineyard.
    The grape sugars are slowly converted into alcohol and a portion of our Chardonnay is allowed to go through Malolactic fermentation and depending on the different flavours we’re trying to achieve with the different batches, a portion may be allowed to develop in a vat that contains specially selected Oak staves to add complexity and extra layers of flavours. These specially selected staves are steam roasted – never burnt, as we believe that this introduces harmful energies into the wine.
    When the fermentation is complete, the newly fermented juice (young wine) gently rests on the yeast and oak for the winter months to create the rich creamy texture that is the hallmark of our great XVIII Chardonnay.

    Tasting Summary:
    Luscious aromas of Brioche and baked apple exude from the glass, with fragrant honeydew melon, fig and buttery almond croissant following closely behind. Swirling the wine and bringing it into your mouth immediately provides a tremendous blast of seville orange, nashi pear, white nectarine as well as seductive vanilla oak nuances. There are nutty savoury undertones in amongst the wonderfully weighted palate then this wine extasy finishes with a sleek lingering lemon finish.
