Firehawk of McLaren Vale Shiraz

2022 Shiraz, McLaren Vale, South Australia

Our Firehawk of McLaren Vale Shiraz is our finest McLaren Vale Vineyard



Our Firehawk of McLaren Vale Shiraz is a single vineyard perched atop an ancient ridge overlooking McLaren Vale, the Willunga escarpment and the Gulf of St Vincent. Firehawk is our Native Bird of Prey that soar over our vineyards acting as scarecrows to other birds, rabbits and the like that eat ripening grapes.

Selected bunches were hand picked by family and friends in early March and gently crushed into open fermenters. After 14 days fermentation the wine was then basket pressed into French oak Barriques, a third new, the balanced seasoned followed by 18 months maturation with minimal winemaking artefact before bottling, to capture the essence of the vineyard and will reward cellaring and decanting.
