Jimmy Watson Finalist 2006, Gold Medals Sydney International + Royal Melbourne, Silver National Wine Show. Shiraz for this wine came from superior Blocks 6 and 7, positioned to a north south aspect. The vines were planted in the nineties, making them the oldest and most balanced in the vineyard. Winemaker Michael Clayden has taken home gold and silver at many events, where he often participates as an associate judge. He has worked at several major Lindemans wineries, and his special passion is for Shiraz.
The ripening period this vintage was long and dry with cloudless days. Vines were heavily pruned to ensure low yields, trimmed to ensure good sunlight exposure for flavour development, inferior bunches and shoots were regularly removed. The fruit was tasted weekly, and then daily when approaching full ripeness, to ensure optimum flavour intensity. Harvested in the cool of the evening 22nd of April. It was then allowed to warm up slowly until optimum temperature for fermentation. Fermentation took thirty six hours at a temperature of 26�C with carefully selected yeast strains used to maintain the natural fruit balance and finesse. Rack and return techniques, with constant monitoring ensured healthy and virile ferment.
TASTING NOTES
Inky hues. A nose crammed with blackberry and black cherry, hints of spice and black pepper. A fine, silky tannin structure leaving an enduring impression on the palate. Harmonious oak. Extended maceration at the end of fermentation ensures a rich and fine tannin structure. A nice touch of vanilla and chocolate oak, in harmony with the fruit, adding interest without dominating.

More About Fowles Winery
Fowles were the first Victorian winery ever to win Great Australian Shiraz Challenge trophy for the finest Shiraz in the land
The Fowles family remain very much at home amongst the rugged Strathbogie Ranges, their wineworks were established astride a striking granite massif that rises to over five hundred metres above sea level. They are surrounded by a multitude of dramatic granite outcrops that burst from the surface of these ancient highlands. The region provide great conditions in which to grow fruit: In the coolness of spring the vines produce only small berries and the ensuing low rainfall and the intense summer sun gives rise to a fruit that is dense in colour and flavour. Energetic and enterprising, they continue to break new ground by bringing the Strathbogie Ranges message in a bottle to the world. Fowles»
