Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, Australia
The fruit was sourced from Fowles estate vineyards in the super cool-climate Strathbogie Ranges of Central Victoria at an elevation of over 1600 feet, as well as from Dookie and the Goulburn Valley in Central Victoria from some of their grape-growing friends. The Fowles family is very committed to ethical and sustainable viticultural practices, as well as hunting and living off the 800 acre expanse they occupy in this remote region, Matt Fowles launched the Farm to Table range of wines to help promote this deep connection to the land.
This Shiraz was fermented in sweep-arm stainless steel fermenters at 84°F to maximize gentle flavor and color extraction, while preserving primary fruit flavors. Aged for 9 months in a combination of French (60%) and American (40%) oak barrels (20% new).
