The Hedonist Shiraz

The fruit for the Hedonist Shiraz is estate grown on organic/biodynamic certified vineyard situated in the Willunga foothills, McLaren Vale. The soil is rich loam over clay with patches of underlying limestone, giving the wine a rich and fullness of pallet. The vintage conditions were ideal for concentrated flavour development and acid retention.
The Shiraz is an estate highlight from this vintage, displaying a plethora of lively red fruits and spice.

“I made it black and silky in new American oak and it’s got that long
velvety finish true Shiraz lovers lust after.” – Walter Clappis, Winemaker
