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.
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.
