Down The Rabbit Hole 2020 Shiraz


Our 2020 Shiraz fills your mouth with rich red berry flavours and peppery undertones which are augmented by the maturation in small french oak. The wine is juicy, soft and velvety, with a long smooth finish.

Vintage Notes 

2020 was a vintage of quality over quantity. The season began with good winter rainfall, followed by a mild start to spring. However, the total rainfall was below average for the third year in a row. Summer started with intense heat mid to late December. Fortunately, the rest of the season was cooler than average with some late rain in the season, which enabled the vines to recover from the early heat and ripen effectively.

Winemaking Notes

The fruit was destemmed and crushed gently, then pumped over twice daily for 12 days. The ferment was kept cool to retain the bright primary fruit characters. Following ferment, the wine was pressed and transferred into French oak barrels (20% new) to mature for 18 months. Certified organic Shiraz from the alluvial clay over sandy loam soils.

Deep red with purple hues

Bright and aromatic with dark red berries, nutmeg, white pepper, subtle oak and complex barrel ferment characters showing through.

Full flavoured, packed with red berries, a hint of plum and blackberry, complemented by dark chocolate, liquorice and black pepper. Structured and well balanced with a long, velvety finish.
