Pepper Tree have strayed from their wineworks at Pokolbin to secure harvests of Terra Rossa Shiraz which are second to none. The team know from good fruit and have a good eye for terroir, their splendid vines planted to Wrattonbully's Gravels Block grow a superior quality of Shiraz, characterized by controlled power and stealthy tannins. Flavour maps which have been generated for the vineyard demonstrate considerable variance, assisting the team to isolate individual sections for the production of a wine exhibiting generosity and charm.
Pepper Tree's Wrattonbully vineyard covers a hundred hectares. Individual blocks are given separate canopy management, cropping structure and moisture control according to soil depth which can vary from a few centimetres to over a metre. Shiraz is grown on red soils with gravelly ironstone layers on the lower slopes of the dune. The extra elevation of the Wrattonbully dunes provides a fortuitous cold air drainage which reduces the risk of frost during the growing season. Shiraz grapes are crushed and vinified on skins at controlled temperatures of 18C to 20C for a week, followed by a year's maturation in a selection of choice French oak barrels. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep scarlet purple hue. Complex nose of dark berry fruits, a heady mix of lifted spice notes integrate well with subtle French oak. Rich and concentrated palate, displaying sweet mid palate fruit seasoned by complex spice flavours. The nicely structured finish is finely balanced and well supported by subtle ripe tannins. The dominant characters of the wine are its spicy white pepper flavours and exceptional palate length.

About Pepper Tree Winery
Although Pepper Tree winery is sited in the Hunter Valley and founded as a Hunter Valley winery, the winemakers believe that grapes grown in other regions exhibited characters that should be explored
Over the years Pepper Tree have acquired vineyards in the Orange, Wrattonbully and Coonawarra growing areas to enable the winemaker production of varietal wines that either did not grow as well in the Hunter Valley, or are different expressions of a particular varietal that are of interest to connoisseurs of fine wines. The character and complexity reflected in the Appellation wines are an expression of diverse vineyard resources. A second is the balance and elegance in the Multi-Regional range of varietals. These are blends of a varietal wine made from grapes grown at two or more of vineyards that vary from year to year. All Pepper Tree wines are produced, aged and bottled at the winery. Pepper Tree»
