JO’S WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
Fruit for the DTG Shiraz was sourced from a single vineyard established in 1998 in the rugged, mountainous Grampians region of Victoria. Wines from this region typically produce characters of elegance, power and beauty with staying power. The wine was fermented with wild yeast, in open pots, hand plunged twice a day for 10 days. As soon as primary fermentation was complete, the wine was racked into 500L French Oak Puncheons (80% New Oak, 20% 1 Year Old), where it was left to go through malolactic fermentation. With minimal intervention, the viticulture/winemaking was more important than ever.
