The Moonrise Kingdom Shiraz Grenache Petite Sirah symbolises our Firehawk Farm, a single biodynamically run vineyard perched atop an ancient ridge overlooking McLaren Vale the Willunga escarpment and the Gulf St Vincent. Firehawk is our Native Bird of Prey that soars over our vineyards; acting as a scarecrow to other birds, rabbits and the like that eat ripening grapes.
The vineyard is handpicked by family and friends in early March. We gently crushed the fruit from the individual varieties into open-top fermenters. After 10 days of fermentation, the wine was basket pressed into French oak barrels, a third new and the balance seasoned. This was followed by 18 months maturation with minimal winemaking artefact before bottling the capture the essence of the vineyard. The blend represents the vineyard's bounty of the 2019 vintage. The wine will reward cellaring and decanting.
This wine is suitable for vegans.
