The fruit for this wine was carefully selected from multiple blocks across our estate vineyards. Reach For The Sky is a soft, juicy style of Shiraz that reflects the opulence and diversity of Barossa.
The 2021 vintage was in a word ‘Brilliant’. Barossa saw cool and dry conditions which has produced excellent quality reds and whites. Great growing conditions combined with good yields created a memorable harvest, with all wines showing a wide array of aromas and flavours. Soft supple tannins are in abundance in the reds which has ensured easy drinking in their youth, with careful cellaring also reaping rewards. The highlight for 2021 was the overall quality, a genuine 10/10 season.
Carefully hand-picked, the grapes then spent 7 days on skins during the fermentation process with pump overs taking place twice a day. The wine was then pressed to tank and left to rest for a couple of days before being placed into French oak barrels of which 25% was new. This wine is great to drink now, but will age gracefully for 7 to 10 years.
